African Superstar On PFA Player Of The Year Shortlist

Mohamed Salah Cristiano Ronaldo

The Egyptian has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, alongside three Manchester City stars, David Silva, Leroy Sane and Kevin de Bruyne.

Belgium global De Bruyne has played a pivotal role in Manchester City's march towards their third Premier League title, with Pep Guardiola's side 13 points clear going into this weekend's fixtures.

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 PFA's Player of the Year will be announced on 22 April during a special awards ceremony in London.

Tottenham players have historically been well represented in the Young Player of the Year award, having won five out out of the last six seasons: Dele in 2016-17 and 2015-16, Harry Kane in 2014-15, and Gareth Bale in 2012-13 and 2011-12.

His assists tally suggests he's not been overly selfish in front of goal and is the firm favourite to win the Golden Boot as he leads a certain Lilywhites striker by four strikes now.

Environment Canada calling for 'potentiallly historic ice storm' this weekend
The severe threat moved out Friday morning, but a few thunderstorms and showers are likely Friday afternoon and evening. Unsafe winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads Saturday and Sunday, worsened by fallen tree limbs.

The former Chelsea and Fiorentina player is now the Premier League's top scorer, four goals ahead of second-placed Harry Kane.

De Bruyne has been the catalyst for the Citizens' unrivalled march to the Premier League title and had been the favourite to scoop the award for most of the season although the bookies have recently awarded that title to his main rival.

They are named alongside David De Gea, David Silva, Leroy Sane, and Harry Kane.

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.

And considering his jaw-dropping displays over the years, that's saying a lot.
