The 2020/21 Premier League Player of the Season, Football Writer’s Player of the Year and Etihad Player of the Season: Ruben Dias.
A commanding presence with a deep-rooted passion and strong winning mentality, Dias' influence has helped to seal a watertight defence, which during the 2020/21 season conceded the fewest Premier League goals and lifted the Carabao Cup for a fourth successive season.
Dias was again outstanding in 2021/22, often wearing the skipper's armband in Fernandinho's absence.
Muscular injuries in the second-half of the campaign kept him out for several weeks, but with 40 starts he more than played a crucial part of City's successful Premier League title defence.
After a solid start to the 2022/23 campaign, Dias was also part of the Portugal squad that reached the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup.
Dias made four starting appearances for Portugal at the Qatar showpiece.
