The Leicester City trio of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante head the six-man shortlist for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.
The Foxes' superb season, which sees them require just three wins from their final five Premier League games to secure a first-ever top flight title, is acknowledged by their presence on the contenders list.
Tottenham's Harry Kane, Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Dmitri Payet of West Ham complete the nominations as none of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea or Liverpool are represented on the list.
22-goal Kane is in line for a double triumph as he is on the shortlist to retain the Young Player of the Year award he picked up last season.
The England forward is joined by team-mate Dele Alli, Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, Stoke's Jack Butland and the Everton duo of Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley.
Kane and Alli look set to battle it out for the Young Player award as they have been pivotal to Spurs' title challenge this campaign.
Kane along with Vardy and Mahrez are expected to be the likeliest winners of the main award with Vardy's 21 goals and Mahrez's 16 goals and 11 assists driving Leicester to the brink of title glory.
Many observers feel that it is their team-mate Kante, who scored on his debut for France's national team recently and is anticipated to play a big role in his country's quest for European glory on home soil this summer, who should collect the award with Alex Ferguson among others highlighting the midfielder's outstanding performances all season long.
