Kevin De Bruyne has been crowned Manchester City’s first-ever PFA Player of the Year.

The Belgian midfielder equalled Arsenal’s legend Thierry Henry’s Premier League record of 20 assists in a single season as City finished second to Premier League champions Liverpool. He also scored 13 goals. 

De Bruyne edged out team-mate Raheem Sterling, and Liverpool quartet Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson, Virgil Van Dijk, and Sadio Mane to win the award on Tuesday night, September 8.
