Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been named Premier League player of the season. The Belgian relegates Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah to second place.

Best man: Kevin De Bruyne has received the honor of being the best player in the Premier League for the second time in three years. The 30-year-old was instrumental in Manchester City’s chance of another Premier League triumph if they defeated Aston Villa on Sunday.

Team inspired: De Bruyne inspired the Blues and his form helped Pep Guardiola’s side reach the semi-finals of the Champions League before a dramatic overtime defeat by Real Madrid.

Great odds: De Bruyne has scored 15 goals and contributed seven assists in 29 Premier League games. In addition to Mohamed Salah, he also prevailed against Joao Cancelo, Jarrod Bowen, Bukayo Ska, James Ward-Prowse, Heung-min Son and Trent Alexander-Arnold. “Winning this award for the second time is an achievement of which I am very proud,” said De Bruyne.
