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)
Kevin De Bruyne – 5/1
Hands down the most talented player in the league is the favourite to win this year PFA Player Of The Year. De Bruyne finally won the award last season, he finished the campaign with 13 goals and 20 assists!
Man City haven’t been at their best so far this season, but De Bruyne certainly has shown glimpses of what he can do. The Belgian midfielder only has 1 goal and 1 assist so far this season, but this may be due to both strikers being injured. Once Pep has City back to their very best, don’t be surprised to see De Bruyne chipping in with a lot more.
With 32 games of the season still to play there is a long way to go. 5/1 is a great price for De Bruyne as if he plays to his potential, surely not many can stop him from winning two PFA’s in a row.
Harry Kane – 8/1
The Spurs frontman has got off to a flying start this season. His side are two points from the top and Kane has scored five and assisted a staggering eight goals in the opening six games. This is a ridiculous return and one that sees him right up there for Player Of the Year so far.
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!
Mo Salah – 9/1
Salah, like De Bruyne, has won the award once, back in his debut season in 2017/18. This season he has started in fine form with six goals in six games. Liverpool dominates most of the games in which they play in and this is only going to help the Egyptian.
Salah is right up the with the best wingers in the world and his goals scoring record in the Premier League is ridiculous. He has 81 goals in 127 games which works out as 0.63 goals per game. At the age of 28, his best may yet be still to come and with Liverpool’s current defensive crisis, he is going to need to step up!
Sadio Mane – 9/1
At the same price is Salah’s Liverpool teammate, Sadio Mane. Last season was a good one for the Senegalese winger, he got 18 goals and nine assists and was a lot of people choice for the Player Of The Year. This season again he has started strongly with four goals and an assist.
Mane has developed himself a lot since he joined Liverpool. He is now not all about pace and has really made himself an all-round better player. He is as key to Liverpool as Salah is now and also one of the best wingers in the world.
