We're now half way through March which means we're approaching the home straight of the football season and one competition that is still wide open is the Premier League. Liverpool and Manchester City are slogging it out at the summit of English football for the honour of being named Champions and it's a race that looks like it's going to go right down to the wire. The pair have produced outrageous consistency and put in some sublime performances - so it will come as little surprise that their players dominate the betting when it comes to the PFA Player of the Year Award.
Players from Anfield and the Etihad make up the first 8 spots in this market, but 4 of them really stand out from the rest. Virgil van Dijk, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Sadio Mane look like the leading contenders at the moment and you really feel that the final destination of the Premier League trophy will have a major say in where this award ends up. It initially looked like a two horse race with van Dijk and Aguero the front runners just like 12 months ago when Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah dominated, but things have changed slightly with Sterling & Mane's performances deservedly seeing them enter the fray.
Salah's record breaking goalscoring run led to him pipping the City man so it's gonna be interesting to see if the award goes to Manchester or stays on Merseyside this time around. Below we've taken a look at the leading contenders and assessed who's in the driving seat going into the business end of the campaign. Who do you think should win the PFA Player of the Year award?
