Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been named the 2019-20 Premier League player of the season.
The Belgian produced 20 assists during the top-flight campaign to equal Thierry Henry’s record and scored 13 times to help Pep Guardiola’s men finish second in the table.
De Bruyne beat Liverpool trio Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Southampton striker Danny Ings, Leicester City’s Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope to the award.
De Bruyne’s former City teammate Vincent Kompany and ex-Chelsea winger Eden Hazard are the two other Belgians to win the accolade.
Liverpool beat City to the title, to end their 30-year wait for league success, and Jurgen Klopp was named manager of the season.
Reds full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold clinched young player of the season after he played a key role in bringing the championship back to Anfield.
Tottenham attacker Son Heung-min’s strike against Burnley in December – where he ran the length of the pitch – scooped goal of the season.
