"The way Teddy is playing he could easily win the award again," said Les. "There are not too many players around the country who are performing as well - he is in a league of his own at the moment.
"He is as good as last season. He is outstanding week in week out."
Meanwhile, David Buchler is quoted in the Mail commenting on the bottle thrown on the pitch during Monday's clash with Bolton.
"I would urge our supporters to become ever more diligent so as not to provide anyone with the ammunition to criticise the club. This club does not condone any inappropriate behaviour by our fans."
Les Ferdinand has backed Teddy Sheringham to reclaim his Player of the Year award.
