PFA Player of the Year Odds: Alexis Mac Allister cut from 250/1 to 12/1 after Sheffield United thunderbolt

Alexis Mac Allister has been cut to 12/1 to win PFA Player of the Year after his match-winning goal against Sheffield United on Thursday night.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Mac Allister's thunderbolt had a bit of a Vincent Kompany 2019 feel to it as the World Cup winner eased the nerves at Anfield.

“He's now either scored or assisted in the last six games, a feat that can only aid him with the PFA Player of the Year Award now on a lot of people's minds.”

The Argentine has been in sensational form in recent weeks with seven goal contributions in his last six games, seeing his price for PFA Player of the Year collapse from 250/1 before the Manchester City game to 100/1 before facing Brighton.

What has threatened to be a three-way title race for what feels like the first time in years now looks set to be perhaps the most thrilling finale in Premier League history.

In their last 10 games, Arsenal have won nine, drawing to Manchester City. In Liverpool’s last 10 games, they’ve won eight, drawing to Manchester City and losing to Arsenal, and in Manchester City’s last 10 games, they’ve won seven, drawing to Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

These remarkable runs of beating virtually everyone who’s not in the title race will come to an end at some point, but at the moment, nobody is blinking.

It’s extremely rare we reach April with all three sides with similar chances in the title race – nobody is odds-on and nobody is bigger than 3/1 – and equally rare we reach April and no one player has taken a firm grip on the PFA Player of the Year award.

Manchester City’s two representatives appear to be Phil Foden (5/2) and Rodri (7/2); Liverpool have Virgil van Dijk (7/1) and Mohamed Salah (10/1) with Mac Allister’s price getting shorter by the day, while Arsenal have Declan Rice (5/1) with Bukayo Saka recently drifting to 12/1.

It seems that every week there’s a new contender, and Mac Allister is the latest. Jurgen Klopp seemed unsure on what his best midfield three was throughout the first half of the season, and whatever combination he fielded made the triumvirate of Wijnaldum-Henderson-Fabinho look a very distant memory.

Mac Allister was often deployed in a deeper role, but with Wataru Endo stepping up in recent weeks, combined with injuries to Curtis Jones and Dominik Szoboszlai, it’s freed Mac Allister up, and he’s recorded a goal or assist in each of his last six games now.

The former Brighton man scored the crucial second goal in the 4-1 win over Brentford before laying on assists for the Reds’ first two goals in the 4-0 win over Luton.

He then added another assist in the 99th minute for Darwin Nunez has Liverpool edged past Nottingham Forest before scoring from the spot to salvage a point against Manchester City.

Mac Allister’s excellent form continued after the international break, laying on an assist for Mohamed Salah’s winner against Brighton before his rocket against Sheffield United.
