Manchester City midfielder Kevin Debruyne has been crowned the English Premier League (EPL) player of the 2019-20 season.

The former Chelsea player beats Liverpool trio Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold Southampton striker Danny Ings, Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope and Leicester City’s Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy to the annual award.

The Belgian international was the only Man City player to be nominated for the prize after they relinquished their Premier League title to Liverpool following two seasons as EPL champions.

Although City’s domestic campaign fell short of their previous lofty standards, De Bruyne enjoyed his most productive season since arriving in Manchester in 2015.

Kevin recorded 20 assists – equalling the league record set by Thierry Henry in 2003 and also scored 13 times to help City finish as the division’s highest scorers for the third successive season.

Meanwhile, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp won the Premier League Manager of the Season ahead of Chelsea’s Frank Lampard, Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder and Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers.- Sky Sports
