The end of the Premier League season is upon us and we have the latest odds for the PFA Player Of The Season 2019/20
Obviously, football is far more than just an individual sport and its not always the best individuals that win the league, Leicester 15/16 for example. However, players do enjoy getting recognised for their personal achievements.
The PFA Player Of The Season award is a big one for any Premier League player to win. It is voted for by all the players in the league and regarded as a great award to receive. The Player Of The Season award was first in 1973/74 and there have been 45 recipients since.
In the Premier League, four players have won it twice. They are Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. Last years winner was Virgil Van Dijk, however, it doesn’t look like he’ll be winning it for a second time this year.
PFA Player Of The Year 2019/20 Odds (Betfair)
Kevin De Bruyne – 5/6
Hands down the most talented player in the league is the favourite to win this year PFA Player Of The Year. He has surprisingly never won the award before but deserves it this year.
Man City haven’t been at their best, but De Bruyne certainly has. The Belgian midfielder has 11 goals and 18 assists this season in 33 games. That nearly averages at a goal or an assist a game, which for a midfielder is an incredible record. He sees passes that no one else seems to see and is a joy to watch.
Due to these stats, it’s hard to see the PFA Player Of The Season award go to anyone else. However, it is down to the players and when playing against each other, will they have De Bruyne down as the best?
Jordan Henderson – 10/3
Liverpool captain looked nailed on to win this award, but a recent injury coupled with the form of De Bruyne has pushed him back in the odds.
He has had a brilliant year for Liverpool and has been their unsung hero. When Henderson hasn’t been present, it has shown. Liverpool has dropped points in five games this season, three of these games have been when Henderson has been injured.
When he signed from Sunderland, few saw him having much of a career at Liverpool, let alone being captain. However, he has taken to it very well, helping guide Liverpool to a Champions League and Premier League title as a captain.
At 10/3 he is at a good price and could well be the third Liverpool player in three years to win the award.
Sadio Mane – 4/1
The 2019/20 season has been Mane’s best season at Liverpool. He is on 17 goals and nine assists for the year, with two games still to go. Last year he did score 22 goals which won him a golden boot, but it has been his overall performance that has been better this year.
Mane has chipped in with some huge goals this season against Arsenal, City, United and Everton. On top of this, he has scored some match-winning goals against bottom-half sides.
Mane has constantly been in the goals this season as well. He hasn’t gone longer than two games without a goal showing he’s a constant threat. At one point this season he was the favourite to win this award.
