Captain fantastic Vincent Kompany has been named the Barclays Player of the Season after an incredible 2011/12 campaign.
The central defender has been a rock at the back for the title favourites and his leadership has been recognised by a panel of experts in winning this award.
The well-organised City defence, orchestrated by Kompany, has kept 17 clean sheets this campaign leading to another award this time for Joe Hart who collected the top flight's Golden Glove prize.
Kompany has also scored his share of goals with a tally of three to date, including of course the winner against United at the end of April.
This is the first time that a City player has picked up the award.
