It is the time of year that the PFA Player of the Year nominees are announced, and there have been some excellent players exceed expectations and have been performing out of their skin consistently for the whole of the season.
Manchester City have recently been confirmed as champions, and Pep Guardiola has seen three of his players be nominated for the Player of the Year award: David Silva, Leroy Sané and Kevin de Bruyne.
On the other side of Manchester, only David de Gea has been nominated from the Old Trafford squad. Meanwhile, the other two nominations are the league’s two top goalscorers, Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
A lot of fans, players, managers etc have said in interviews and on social media that the award should be either between Kevin de Bruyne or Mohamed Salah.
de Bruyne leads the assist chart with 15 to his name, along with seven goals. He has averages 73 successful passes per match and has been the key to Manchester City’s incredible success and will earn his medal more than any player in a sky blue shirt.
Salah joined Liverpool for £36.9m from AS Roma and in his first season at Anfield has seen him score 30 goals and easily able to break the record for most goals in a season, and has guided the Reds to the semi-final of the Champions League and third place in the Premier League.
Behind the stats, the two have been incredibly impressive with their performances and pride they show for their respective clubs, and have attracted the attention the world.
It is almost impossible to decide who wins this award, but to nearly break a goalscoring record in his first season, and to be the most crucial cog in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool machine, it would have to go to Salah, but it’s fair to say there would be no complaints if de Bruyne were to claim the award.
