    Gonzalo Higuain is voted the fans' EA Sports MVP of the 2016/17 season

    Cast your minds back to Saturday 20 August.

    Sami Khedira's thumping header has given Juventus the lead on the opening night of the season, only for Fiorentina to quickly reply and equalise through Nikola Kalinic.

    Just over 20 minutes from time, Gonzalo Higuain comes off the bench to replace Mario Mandzukic. Ten minutes later he was celebrating the winning goal in now typical fashion, pouncing on a loose ball in the box before sprinting over to the corner flag, face wide with passion, arms outstretched.

    That night would mark the beginning of a superb 2016/17 campaign for Higuain who has gone on to net a further 31 strikes in all competitions for the Old Lady. 

    Now, Pipita's debut season will be honoured not only with silverware but also a personal accolade on behalf of the supporters who have voted him their EA Sports MVP of the season.

    A lucky J-Member will present Higuain with his award before kick-off against Crotone on Sunday afternoon, with both dreaming of adding a second trophy of the week to their collections...
