Manchester City dominate PFA awards shortlists

Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool lead the nominations for the PFA Player of The Year. The 17-year-old wonderkid has been in sparkling form for the Cottagers this season, scoring 14 goals and creating six more, and it seems nearly certain that he will be playing Premier League football next season even if Fulham fail to win promotion this year.

Competition is likely to be that bit more fierce in this field (though again Man City dominate), with Ederson Moraes and Raheem Sterling also getting the nod along with Man United's Marcus Rashford.

The victor will be announced at the PFA's annual awards ceremony in London on Sunday, April 22.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea completes the shortlist.

De Bruyne has been the standout player in the incredible Manchester City side that have stormed the Premier League this season.

The second of City' trio to feature, David Silva has enjoyed something of a renaissance this season as, despite having his campaign interrupted due to some personal issues, he has eight goals and 11 assists to his name.

But the bad has often accompanied the good in the Thunder's 48-34 season - one win better than last year's campaign. It just so happened that they played well as well. 36 points and 7 rebounds for the former Oregon Duck.

The 25-year-old Egyptian forward, arguably the signing of this season, has registered 29 goals across 31 matches; the current record in a 38-game season is 31 and presently co-held by Alan Shearer (1995/96), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007/08) and Luis Suarez (2013/14).

The North Lonodners are nearly assured of a top-four spot and Kane's 25 goals have played a key role in that.

However, Salah has emerged as a real challenger to the Belgian after maintaining his outstanding form in the Premier League.

Sterling, 23, is joint-fourth in the Premier League's scoring charts behind Salah, Kane and Sergio Aguero with 16 goals, and has also added eight assists.

This followed the release of the list as well as that of the Young Player of the Year.

Among his rivals for that prize is 17-year-old Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon.
