Kevin de Bruyne and Sadio Mane lead PFA Player of the Year nominations

Kevin de Bruyne

Liverpool dominate the six-man shortlist – with four nominees – for the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award, with Kevin de Bruyne and Sadio Mane the front-runners.

Liverpool secured a first league title in 30 years via a margin of 18 points from second-placed Manchester City.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, last year’s winners Virgil Van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, and Raheem Sterling join De Bruyne and Mane on the shortlist.

De Bruyne and Mane are the bookies’ favourites, but Jordan Henderson should not be discounted after his Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award earlier in the year.
