Kevin de Bruyne beats Man Utd and Tottenham stars to PFA award

Kevin de Bruyne has won the 2021 men’s PFA Players’ Player of the year Award.

Chelsea forward Fran Kirby has taken the women’s award while Phil Foden has scooped the Young Player of the Year award.

De Bruyne wins the award for the second season running, fending off City teammates Foden, Ruben Dias and Ilkay Gundogan along with Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Chelsea’s all-time leading goal scorer Kirby meanwhile saw off competition from teammates Sam Kerr and Ann-Katrin Berger.

Foden takes the young player’s award ahead of fellow England internationals Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mason Mount, Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka and Mason Greenwood.

Six City players were named in the PFA Team of the Year following their Premier League title success.

Ederson, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan were all rewarded for their outstanding contributions with selections in the star-studded starting XI which was unveiled on Friday evening.

Manchester United pair Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes, Tottenham duo Harry Kane and Heung-min Son and Liverpool’s Mo Salah completed the line-up.
