City trio dominate awards nominees
Manchester City trio David Silva, Joe Hart and Sergio Aguero are contenders for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Vincent Kompany may feel unfortunate to miss out on the PFA shortlist which also includes Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker and Arsenal forward Robin van Persie. Aguero, who has scored 21 Premier League goals and been credited with eight assists, has been a revelation since his summer move from Atletico Madrid, scoring a double on his debut against Swansea in August and grabbing a hat-trick against Wigan a month later. Silva was City's top performer in the first half of the season and still leads the Premier League for the most assists this season - 15. Hart has been consistently brilliant this season and has pulled off many memorable saves at crucial times in matches. Aguero, 23, is also on the shortlist for the PFA Young Player of the Year in which he will be judged against Manchester United's Danny Welbeck, Chelsea's Danny Sturridge, Spurs' Gareth Bale and Kyle Walker, Arsenal prodigy Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The winner will be announced on Sunday. PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor assessed the candidates as the list was revealed. Taylor said: "He has been an excellent buy. His strength, courage and goals have been there for all to see and we are fortunate to be able to see him in this country."
