Manchester United Football Club has one player nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, with another star up for the Young PFA Player of the Year trophy.
The list was published by the BBC earlier today, and it comes as no surprise that Red Devils shot-stopper David de Gea is up for the PFA Player of the Year award; largely dominated by Manchester City players.
Our Spaniard has been nothing short of sensational once again this term, and I dread to think where we’d be without his immense talents. He makes some absolutely unbelievable saves that many other keepers just wouldn’t be able to even get near.
Sure, his chances of scooping the trophy are minimal, but it’s nice that his abilities have been recognised, and I’m sure he’ll be thrilled to be amongst the best players in the Premier League this term.
Introducing our contenders for this year's #PFAawards…

Now we move onto one of our own; Marcus Rashford. The 20-year-old is amongst Harry Kane and Ederson(!) who are both 24, for the Young PFA Player of the Year award.
The fact that two 24-year-old’s have been nominated for the ‘young’ version if the award absolutely baffles me, and the fact that Kane is included probably means Rashford will get nowhere near winning this trophy, which is somewhat of a shame.
