Manchester City and Belgium attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is the Premier League Player of the Season 2019/2020.

The 29-year-old was the only Manchester City player to be nominated this season, and had to beat Liverpool trio captain Jordan Henderson Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Leicester City record-breaking striker Jamie Vardy, Southampton top scorer Danny Ings and Burnley shot-stopper Nick Pope completed the nominated list

Since his arrival at the Etihad Stadium in 2015, De Bruyne has scored 13 times and provided 20 assists - equal to league record set by Thierry Henry in 2003.
