The City boss had some stinging criticism for the PFA award, the winner of which is expected to be named soon, just before Reds captain Jordan Henderson was named the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year on Friday, beating City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the accolade.

"No, no, it (the PFA Player of the Year award) will be won by a Liverpool player," the 48-year-old told BBC Sport when asked if he thought any of his players were in with a chance of winning the award this season.

"When we won the Premier Leagues, it was won by a Liverpool player.

"When they win the Premier League I'm pretty sure they are going to win the player of the season, so this award is always for Liverpool."

Mohamed Salah won the award in 2017/18 while Virgil van Dijk claimed it in the 2018/19 campaign, despite City winning the league title in both those seasons.
