Everton, Liverpool and Southampton also have candidates.
The nominees for the PFA Young Player of the Year award have been announced with Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Southampton starlets all shortlisted.
Criteria for the award states that for a player to be included they have to have started the season aged 23-years-old or younger and as such PFA Player of the Year candidates Eden Hazard and Daniel Sturridge are both included.
The Reds are the only team to have two players featured as winger Raheem Sterling also gets a nod, whilst Aaron Ramsey, Ross Barkley and Luke Shaw make up the shortlist.
With Luis Suarez expected to win Player of the Year, Blues ace Hazard is the favourite to be crowned the best young player in the Premier League.
However, Sturridge poses strong opposition having scored an impressive 20 league goals in 24 matches to date and helping his team to top of the table.
The striker’s team-mate Sterling has come on leaps and bounds this term and looks certain to make Roy Hodgson’s 23-man England squad for the 2014 World Cup.
In fact the Three Lions boss will be pleased to see that four of the six candidates are English, with Toffees attacking midfielder Barkley and Saints defender Shaw also likely to make his squad.
Ramsey started the campaign brilliantly for the Gunners and would have surely been a favourite for the gong had his season not been cruelly cut short on Boxing Day due to injury.
