They may have been dumped out of both domestic cups and trail rivals Manchester United by five points in the Premier League title race but that has not stopped Manchester City from dominating the nominees list for PFA Players’ Player of the Year award.

City boast three stars on the six-man shortlist, revealed by the Professional Footballers’ Association, with Joe Hart, David Silva and Serio Aguero joined by Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker, Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney and Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie.

PFA chief executive Gordan Taylor has assessed each of the candidates as the list was revealed with the winner to be announced at the union’s prestigious annual awards night on Sunday.
