Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is the current Premier League Player of the Year having landed that prize for his excellent outing in 2019-20 season and he will be hoping to complete a notable double, allowing him to follow in the footsteps of Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Van Dijk – who have taken the PFA gong in the last two seasons.

The English player is also  up for the Young Player of the Year award alongside his National team counterpart and Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood. With Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, his Stamford Bridge team-mate Mason Mount and Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka all getting nods for the award, that category can easily be referred to as ‘a battle for the best English young player’.
