Their brilliance in City's outstanding Premier League campaign to date has been recognised by their peers, with Tottenham striker Harry Kane, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea making up the six-man shortlist for the award.

Concise News gathered that the winners of both accolades will be revealed at an event in London's Grosvenor House on April 22.

German worldwide Sane has been directly involved in 21 goals this season for City, scoring nine times and adding a further 12 assists, which is second only to De Bruyne.

United will have been disappointed not to get closer to runaway leaders City this term, though one constant for them has been the form of De Gea, who is the only goalkeeper among the nominees.

The Egyptian has scored 39 times in all competitions, including in each leg as Liverpool dumped City out of the Champions League quarter-finals 5-1 on aggregate.

Sterling, 23, is joint-fourth in the Premier League's scoring charts behind Salah, Kane and Sergio Aguero with 16 goals, and has also added eight assists.
