The Manchester City duo are included on the eight-man shortlist alongside Burnley’s Nathan Collins, Cristiano Ronaldo, Son-Heung-min, Thiago, Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes and Leandro Trossard of Brighton and Hove Albion.
De Bruyne and Jesus made vital contributions as City went unbeaten in our five league games to ensure we remained in pole position heading into the final month of the campaign.
The Belgian midfielder was at his influential best, scoring twice and providing three assists in four appearances, which included a strike in the crucial draw with Liverpool and a virtuoso performance in our 3-0 eclipse of Brighton.
Jesus was also on target against the Reds in a month in which he found himself in inspired form.
The Brazilian netted six times in five games, with four of those goals coming in a Man of the Match display against Watford when he also provided an assist to become only the second City player after Sergio Aguero to directly contribute to five goals in a single Premier League match.
Voting closes at midday on Monday 9 May and the winner will be announced on the following Thursday.
