The 2020/21 Premier League season is well underway and we have the latest odds for who will be voted the PFA Player Of The Year at the end of the season
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 46 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 2020/21 Odds (Betfair)
Bruno Fernandes – 17/10
A month or two ago Bruno was seen as an outside chance for winning this award, however, week by week he keeps adding to his tally for the season. He currently has 14 goals and nine assists for the season in just 24 games which is a fantastic return.
Bruno is involved in everything United do and that includes taking penalties, which he gets a lot of! He hasn’t had any serious injury problems over his career and if he can carry this on for this season he could finish on ridiculously high numbers!
Ilkay Gundogan – 4/1
The German midfielder has shot up the odds in the last few weeks after some fantastic performances for City. His side have climbed to the top of the Premier Leauge, now nearly ten points clear.
Gundogan’s good form has coincided with an injury to De Bruyne. He has 11 goals and two assists in his last 12 games and has really filled the spot of the Belgian midfielder. Given that he isn’t an attacking midfielder this makes it even more impressive. If he can carry this form on for the remainder of the season, he could take Bruno all the way.
Jack Grealish – 15/2
The Aston Villa forward is wanted by all the big clubs in the summer after a fantastic season so far. Grealish has six goals and ten assists this season. He has been one of the best players in the league and impresses every time he plays.
On top of this, the award is voted for by fellow players. Grealish seems to give the opposition nightmares when he plays against them with his fantastic close control and dribbling. At 15/2 he could be worth an outside bet.
Harry Kane – 17/2
The Spurs frontman has had a fantastic season and has scored 13 and assisted a staggering 11 goals in the opening 23 games. This is a ridiculous return and one that could see him win his first ever PFA Player Of The Year award.
We have always said if Kane can stay fit he can be one of the league best players. He showed this in 2017/18 when he scored 29 goals in 30 games. This season he has struck up a fantastic partnership with Son and the two of them can’t stop assisting each other. Even with the arrival of Gareth Bale, Kane is still the main man at Spurs and if he keeps up this form he could break some records this season!
