The six-man young players' list also contains three City players, with 22-year-old Germany worldwide Sane nominated alongside England forward Raheem Sterling, 23, and Brazil goalkeeper Ederson Moraes, 24.

The victor will be announced on Monday 23 April at the PFA Awards.

The shortlist was announced on Saturday and saw the inclusion of Manchester City trio David Silva, Kevin de Bruyne, and Leroy Sane.

Sane has arguably been the most improved player this term too, with the German winger benefiting from Guardiola's tutelage to help himself to nine goals and 12 assists in 27 games for the Etihad stadium-based club. Ederson, Kane, Marcus Rashford, Sessegnon, Sane and Raheem Sterling are the six names on the shortlist.

Salah and De Bruyne are the stand-out contenders, with debate raging over which one should collect the award.

Kane and Salah had a phenomenal 54 Premier League goals between them heading into the weekend.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who have scored of 29 and 25 league goals respectively, are also nominated.

The Egypt star scored in both legs as Liverpool knocked out City to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League earlier this week.

Silva has also produced moments of brilliance for City in the heart of midfield, while De Gea's typically superb form for United is rewarded once more with yet another nomination for the top award.

Having arrived from Roma past year, the former Chelsea winger has transitioned seamlessly, scoring 29 times in 31 league appearances.
