Manchester City players dominate the shortlist for this year’s PFA Player of the Year Award with as many as four stars from Pep Guardiola’s side nominated for the prize.
Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Phil Foden will represent the Premier League champions in the shortlist after the quartet led City to their fifth top-flight title this term.

Belgian midfielder De Bruyne won the award last year having registered 20 assists for Guardiola’s City during the 2019-20 campaign.
The list is slightly different from the Premier League’s own Player of the Year Award announced on Tuesday, with Gundogan and Foden not shortlisted for that prize.
The eight-man shortlist listed by England’s top-flight included nominations for Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, along with City duo De Bruyne and Dias.
