Many legendary figures have claimed the PFA Player of the Year award, with the unrivalled defensive work from Virgil van Dijk justifying his win last season with Liverpool. The Dutchman became the first defender since John Terry in 2004/05 to win the prestigious award, beating the elite playmakers and goalscorers in England to the title.
This year, once again, it's the Liverpool and Manchester City men battling it out for this individual accolade. Surprisingly, a City star has never officially won the award in their years of dominating English football, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany all being overlooked by names such as Robin van Persie, Luis Suarez and Mohamed Salah down the years. Perhaps this is the year a City man reigns supreme.
De Bruyne is once again in the mix for this award, battling the likes of Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane for the award. Here, we take a look at this great debate and see who deserve to win the PFA Player of the Year.
