Six-man PFA Player of the Year shortlist announced

An African superstar has been named as one of the nominees for PFA Player of the Year.

Kane and Sane are also in the running for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, as are Ederson, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham.

De Bruyne and Salah are the favourites to follow in the footsteps of Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante who collected the award in the 2016/17 season after he saw off competition from Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez. There has even been talk of him being included in the England squad for the World Cup, despite him never having played in the Premier League.

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

De Bruyne and Silva have, literally, been central to City rise to the Premier League summit this season.

The 25-year-old Egyptian has enjoyed an incredible debut season at Liverpool.

Since the Premier League was reduced to 20 teams for the 1995-96 campaign, only six players have hit the 30-goal barrier-Alan Shearer, Kevin Phillips, Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez-while no player has ever passed 31 goals.

The Egypt star scored in both legs as Liverpool knocked out City to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League earlier this week.

Were De Gea to claim the award he would become the first goalkeeper to win it since Peter Shilton in 1978. His reward is a place on the Young Player of the Year shortlist.

Having arrived from Roma a year ago, the former Chelsea winger has transitioned seamlessly, scoring 29 times in 31 league appearances.
