James Milner is backing one of his Manchester City teammates for this season' s PFA Player of the Year.

Milner believes there is only one person who should win the PFA Player of the Year this season – team-mate David Silva.

“Maybe I am biased but David has been unbelievable for us,” Milner told City's website. “He should be in the running regardless of what I think.

“But we have another candidate, too because Joe Hart has been absolutely outstanding all season.

“There have been top performances right through the squad. Gareth Barry has been unbelievable while the boys at the back Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott plus Gael Clichy coming in – it’s not easy changing clubs.

“It is a quality squad to be involved in, but David and Joe are the two stand-out performers for me. We can't vote for them because we are team-mates but I’m sure they will be there or thereabouts.”
