"It's maybe unusual that I'm the first one at City, seeing all the good players who played there before and who are still playing. But it's nice to represent the club". He gives me a lot of freedom.

'When players vote for you, and it's everyone who is voting not just a few, that means you've done really well during the season, ' added De Bruyne, who was also awarded Premier League Player of the Season last month.

'If I can help myself, I'll do that, but he knows I want the team to win and if the team wins then I'll gain from it.

As for the team of the year, Burnley 'keeper Nick Pope got the nod while it's a defence of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Leicester City's Caglar Soyuncu, and Andy Robertson.

Beth England won the women's player of the year award, having helped Chelsea capture the Women's Super League and the League Cup by scoring 21 goals in all competitions.

'It's a huge honour.

"When they win the Premier League I'm pretty sure they are going to win the player of the season, so this award is always for Liverpool".

She said: "At the moment I think it's the time to be at City, and I think people from the outside are looking and saying, "Wow they are going to do well this season".
