Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has also been nominated, while Manchester United's David de Gea is the only goalkeeper on the list.

Former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott said: 'It is hard to choose but De Bruyne pips Salah because he has helped City win the league'.

The Egyptian has already hit 29 goals in 31 games for Liverpool in the Premier League and is on course to break the all time scoring record in a single season which Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo share having both scored 31 times.

A simply sensational season from the German, who has nine goals and 12 assists, and must be one of the prime candidates to win the prize. This week, the Egypt worldwide became.


The Spain playmaker has eight goals and 11 assists to his name in a City team which has dominated the competition this year.

The Belgium global was the leading contender heading into the second half of the Premier League season but De Bruyne's form has dipped in recent weeks.

Egyptian superstar Salah has chalked up 29 goals in only 31 league matches for Jurgen Klopp's side in his first season back in England's top flight, and now leads the scoring charts - ahead of second-placed Kane - by four goals.

They are joined by City duo Ederson and Raheem Sterling, Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford and exciting Fulham prospect Ryan Sessegnon.


Ederson has been impressive for Manchester City in the Premier League which has earned him a nomination for the Young Player of the Year, the Brazilian shot stopper has 14 clean sheets.

Salah has perhaps been the most impressive new signing of the season, and is set to finish as the Premier League's top scorer.

The PFA awards will be revealed in a ceremony later in April.
