Manchester City ran away with the title but there were a number of outstanding performances from individual players across the division who could snatch the award


Eight players from seven different clubs are in the running for the Premier League Player of the Season award after the nominees were confirmed.

Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Ruben Dias are the only two stars from the same team to be in contention following their title triumph.

Dias could even land a double of individual accolades if he comes out on top, having already bagged the Football Writers' Award in the same category.

Their biggest competition is likely to come from Tottenham's Harry Kane - who could well even be their teammate next season.

Kane has scored more goals and provided more assists than any other player in 2020/21, ahead of Mohamed Salah and Bruno Fernandes respectively, both of whom are also on the shortlist.

Salah was pipped at the post for the Golden Boot on the final day of the season by Kane, who ended the campaign with 23 goals - one ahead of Liverpool's top scorer.

Meanwhile, Man Utd talisman Fernandes ranked third in the scoring stakes but second in assists, though was still two behind Kane in the latter.

Joining them are three players who will be considered more as outsiders for the trophy, but have been the standout performers in their respective sides.

Mason Mount helped Chelsea secure a top four finish as well as triumphing in Europe, and is included after a breathtaking year which saw him also captain his boyhood club for the first time.

Across London, one of the signings of the season has been making waves at West Ham in Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek.

The Hammers performed above expectations to finish sixth in the table, largely thanks to Soucek's prowess in front of goal.

He managed to hit double figures in his debut season in the Premier League - on par with fellow joint-leading scorer for the club, Michail Antonio.

Making up the group of candidates is Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish, who has been exceptional in his side's much-improved season.

Grealish was pivotal in Villa's remarkable 7-2 win over Liverpool back in October though was unfortunate to miss some of the back end of the campaign through injury.

His tally of chances created still remains one of the highest in the division, though, and he also played a part in 16 goals for his team overall.

But it is Dias who appears to be the man to beat after the summer signing shored up City's defence and helped spearhead their charge to a fourth title.

The Portuguese centre-back was ever-present following his move from Benfica, making 32 appearances and keeping 15 clean sheets in the process.
