Raheem Sterling is now 6/4 to win PFA Young Player of the Year as bookmakers start to realise that he’s the one to beat for this award this season.
The former Liverpool winger has shone brightly for Manchester City this season and was a constant menace during Sunday’s Manchester derby which saw the Citizens run out 3-1 winners.
Paddy Power have now trimmed Sterling’s odds and he could be odds-on for the prize come Christmas, although there has also been money for one of his team-mates.
Bernardo Silva is 6/1 with Paddy Power and assisted two of the City goals during the derby, while Richarlison is a 9/1 poke and the Everton man is playing in an advanced position and doing well for the Toffees.
Joe Gomez is also trading at single figures and continues to prosper for Liverpool, while James Maddison is 9/1 and Leroy Sane is a 16/1 poke, with Pep Guardiola seemingly preferring to keep him on the bench.
Manchester City hardened for this season’s Premier League title on Sunday after they thrashed Southampton 6-1, with Raheem Sterling the chief architect behind a victory which illustrated that they’re the most ruthless team in England.
Sterling continues to make great strides under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola and BetVictor currently offer an attractive 9/2 about the 23-year-old claiming the PFA Young Player of the Year award this season.
It’s feasible that Sterling might be among the top scorers in the division and he was all over the place against the Saints, showing an ability to create scoring chances as well as convert them himself.
Another big mover in this market has been Richarlison who bagged two goals for Everton on Saturday and the Brazilian is now 7/1 to scoop the prize, with the Toffees having spent big to secure his services last summer.
Richarlison now appears to be playing as a central striker for Everton and could help propel the Merseyside team into a top six spot come the end of the season, although it could be another Manchester City player that also contends for this award.
Leroy Sane is an 8/1 poke to retain his award, with the German continuing to show progression in a blue shirt, while it currently looks like a three-player race considering that the likes of Naby Keita, James Maddison and Ruben Neves are performing on a sporadic basis.
