Liverpool's Mo Salah now favourite for PFA Player of the Year award

Mo Salah has had a tremendous start to the season with 6 goals in his first 7 Premier League games, plus a September PFA Player of the Month award, showing that he means business. 

Bookmakers have already shortened his odds to win what would be his second PFA Player of the Year award after winning it back in the 2017-18 season. 

With such a strong start to the season, if Salah was to carry on in the scoring form that he's showed so far this year he is set to break his own record of 32 goals by the last couple of games of this campaign. 

The 'Egyptian King' is the only Liverpool player near the top of the market in the betting, with teammates Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk both as low down as 25/1 in the odds to be the PFA Player of the Year.

Cristiano Ronaldo second favourite with bookies for the award

Cristiano Ronaldo was always bound to be there or thereabouts in the conversation for the PFA Player of the Year award and his instant impact at Manchester United already made him be backed into second favourite. 

The last few weeks have been a struggle for Ronaldo and his United teammates, with serious questions starting to be asked about manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Ronaldo's movement in the market isn't necessarily a drastic one, coming down to 4/1 from 6/1, but it still shows that bookmakers feel like Ronaldo has a better chance now than he did when he joined United at being the player of the year. 

Portugal and Man United teammate Bruno Fernandes is close to Cristiano Ronaldo in the market with odds of 6/1 suggesting that he has a chance of being the PFA Player of the Year too if he can continue his form this season also. 

Ronaldo clutched up in the Champions League to help Man Utd beat Villarreal before the international break.


Man City's Kevin De Bruyne out to 10/1 following poor start to season

Kevin De Bruyne has been one of the most consistent players in the Premier League over the last few seasons and he's proved that by winning back-to-back PFA Player of the Year awards in the last two seasons.

De Bruyne has been Manchester City's best player over those seasons and has set himself such a high standard that when he falls slightly below that it's clear to see.

A mixture of injury and tiredness seems to be affecting De Bruyne's performances and it'll take a big turn to see him spoken about in the Player of the Year market this season. 

Other previous winners of the award in the market include Chelsea's N'Golo Kante at 22/1 and De Bruyne's Man City teammate Riyad Mahrez at 40/1.

PFA Player of the Year winner Odds Probability
Mo Salah 7/2 22.2%
Cristiano Ronaldo 4/1 20%
Romelu Lukaku 7/1 12.5%
Bruno Fernandes
8/1 11.1%
