Overall, nine City players received votes which accounted for over 50% of those cast.

FWA chair, Carrie Brown said: “Ruben Dias turned heads soon after his arrival in Manchester, a 23-year-old belying his age with fortitude, steel, a relentless drive for perfection and an almost superhuman ability to read and anticipate phases of play.”
