Despite Manchester United reclaiming the Premier League crown with four games to go, it has been another thrilling season in England's top tier.

Tottenham forward Gareth Bale has been a shining light for Andre Villas-Boas' high-flying Spurs, and picked up both the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year gongs at Sunday night's glittering ceremony.

He was also named in the PFA's Team of the Year, getting the nod on the left flank, and has been selected in the majority of teams picked by a string of on-line journalists and TV/radio presenters.
