PFA Player of the Year odds - Kevin De Bruyne touches odds-on over Jordan Henderson

There are at least three viable contenders...

Kevin De Bruyne’s imperious performances since the Premier League resumed have seen him surge into a strong favourite to be crowned PFA Player of the Year.

Bookmakers have unanimously cut odds on the midfielder from 2/1 last month into 5/6 at the time of writing.

That means he’s nudged Liverpool talisman Jordan Henderson out of the top spot on the Oddschecker grids, now drifting out to 10/3 second-favourite.

The bookies’ shortlist is almost entirely made up of Liverpool players, with the star of the first half of the season, Sadio Mane, now 9/2 third-favourite.

Last year’s unanimous winner, Virgil van Dijk, is 11/1 to retain his crown as best individual Premier League player.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is a touch longer at 12/1, then comes Mo Salah (18/1) and Fabinho (50/1).

Looking dead set for Top Goalscorer, Jamie Vardy is a longer price at 66/1, followed by Raheem Sterling (80/1) and Roberto Firmino (100/1).

Leading football stats site, WhoScored.com, revealed that favourite Kevin De Bruyne has a whopping 29 direct goal contributions from just 29 starts.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “The PFA Player of the Year market is one where we see a lot of fluctuation throughout the year, with stars of the opening half of the season often overlooked come the award announcement.

“Sadio Mane shortened into a 10/11 shot earlier in the year, whilst Jordan Henderson also touched favouritism at 6/4.

“Kevin De Bruyne has been mercurial for the entirety of the season and his sparkling form post-Project Restart makes him a worthy favourite ahead of the vote.”
