20/1 POTY. We would need to be still chasing in the league but if we are when the voting is cast he has a very legit shot

Voting is in February, right? Unless some like Aguero pulls way ahead as top scorer or has a month like Suarez did in December 13/14 think it's going to be between him and Sterling.

Checking the odds and Silva and Hazard the top 2?

I've got a feeling that Origi is the real deal, from a couple of games I watched but mainly his interviews there seems to be something about him.

Man mountain of a defender. Actual rolls Royce out there

The goal where he was blocked off showed how much of a presence he is back there

Never thought we’d say that 75 million was daylight robbery. Can’t think of another defender out there with all his characteristics. Fast, strong as an OX, wins 9/10 aerial duals, defending, positioning, marking, passing and leadership

The only little thing that he could improve on would be getting at the end of a few attacking corners and burying them in the back of the net

He is out of this world. Perhaps the most complete defender I’ve ever seen. I’ve said this time and time again, but there is no weakness to his game, none at all. He’s a fantastic leader too on top of everything else.

His skill with the ball is excellent too. Can remember a few games back, he pulled of a Coutinho for a few seconds and almost ended up scoring - ala Robbie!
Think it was against Arsenal.

Most complete defender I've seen in a very long time! Play him in the hole! ;D

Starting to run out of words to describe him, similar to Suarez a few years back when he was just so consistently brilliant.

A Burnley defender (forgot which one, maybe Mee) brilliantly intercepted a pass from van Dijk that Charlie Adam would have been proud of. If he hadn't got to it, Trent would have been through for quite a simple goal.

Apart from his technical performance tonight, it was his attitude and drive to win was exceptional.

Wow, it's not often you see opposition fans giving a fair and honest reflection these days. Fair play to those Burnley fans.

I'd also like to see the gif of him whistling whilst controlling the ball as he goes past two of their players too.  ;D
