It was an outstanding season for the German midfielder whose impressive form in front of goal helped Pep Guardiola’s side claim a third title in four years.
Gundogan scored 17 times and provided five assists in 46 games in all competitions, ending the campaign as City’s top scorer.
The 30-year-old produced a superb run of performances as the Premier League’s in-form player midway through the season, scoring 11 goals in 12 games, including memorable doubles in back-to-back victories over Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Having been so influential, his efforts were recognised by his fellow professionals as he was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the first time.
