The PFA Player of the Year is the seasonal award presented to the player adjudged to have been the best in the English Premier League.

This is the individual trophy that every player in the Premier League wants to get his hands on.

The current holder of this prestigious title is N'Golo Kante of Chelsea.

The incredible form of the champions-elect Manchester City has meant that most of the names featuring on this list are Pep Guardiola's boys.

Here is a look at ten of the likely candidates:

#10 David Silva (Manchester City)

Arsenal v Manchester City - Premier League
The Spanish wizard has been in supreme form this season

The heartbeat of Pep Guardiola's midfield, Silva is to Manchester City what Xavi was to Barcelona. He controls the play in the middle of the park and provides the calmness and composure to an attack bustling with pace and energy.

He may not be the player who bags the most number of goals or assists, but he's the one who is most influential in the moves leading to the goals and the 6 goals and 8 assists that he has provided is a testament to that.

This man has been somewhat overshadowed by the dynamic performances of de Bruyne, Sterling, Sane, and Aguero, but he still manages to light up games with his silky touch and elegance on the ball.
