The Belgium worldwide has played an integral role in helping City dominate in the Premier League, with Pep Guardiola's side needing just one more win to secure the title after already claiming the EFL Cup. "He deserves it. If it's no-one from our team, I think he deserves it", De Bruyne said.

But Hodgson is staying well clear of putting forward his nomination.

Salah is running away with the Golden Boot having scored 29 goals, leaving him five clear of Harry Kane.

De Bruyne could well have voted for global compatriot Romelu Lukaku up top but we'll just have to wait and see with that, while the Belgian midfielder understandably opted for Liverpool talisman Mo Salah as his Player of the Year.

De Bruyne said that Mo Salah gets his vote.

That defeat came at the hands of Liverpool who they face tonight in a crunch Champions League quarter-final first leg. "I am very pleased with how I have played and I didn't expect to be this good this season to be honest", he continued. They are the four best players of this year, constantly. "In the end, we cannot choose City players but if you look in our team, there are so many who could be [in contention for end-of-season awards]".

De Bruyne understands that Salah's remarkable goal tally could well result in the Egyptian pipping him to the post but he's happy to let the best man win.

"I think we had a 10-minute spell when we lost control of the game". It's totally different, I played (against Everton), like a defensive midfielder, how you can compare me to an inside forward? "Luckily I don't have to make the decision".
