John O'Shea admits he is shocked Manchester United team-mate Nani has not been nominated for the PFA player of the year award.
The Portugal winger is top of the Premier League assists chart in addition to bagging 10 goals in his best season to date at Old Trafford.
Nani inspired United to their 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday setting up both goals for Dimitar Berbatov and Antonio Valencia
Despite his superb form the 24-year-old has not managed to make the PFA short-list, even though it has been extended to seven names this term.
Amazed"I am pretty amazed by that," admitted O'Shea.
"Maybe because he was still eligible for the young player, people didn't vote for him for the senior player.
"He is a constant threat. Defenders don't know whether he is going to go on his left and his right and his combination with Patrice Evra was excellent."
United are now in the happy position of knowing five victories from their final six games will be enough to confirm a record 19th league title.
However, O'Shea insists they are taking it one game at a time as they continue their pursuit of another treble.
"It is a classic cliche but we literally are just chalking off one game at a time," added O'Shea.
"The good thing is we feel so confident, especially at home.
"We have only dropped two points at Old Trafford this season and that day, against West Brom, was very disappointing.
"It would be very special if we could finish off the season keeping that record."
ReturnUnited take on Chelsea in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday and O'Shea is hoping to be involved after making a successful return from injury against Fulham.
"I am back a week or two ahead of schedule," continued O'Shea. "I just worked very hard with the physios and thankfully, they were able to get me back that bit quicker.
"I was just a little bit cautious today because I didn't want to go hell for leather so soon.
"It was a great game to get my confidence back and give the manager an option for the games ahead."
O'Shea is excited about the prospect of taking on Chelsea in the start of a defining week for United.
"You have to get excited about games such as this," said O'Shea.
"That is what you train all year for. You want to get to the latter stages of competitions. It is perfect."
