Dele Alli's Young Player of the Year honour on Sunday night took us up to 10 in the history of the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) awards.

The PFA awards began in 1973-74 and Pat Jennings was the club's first recipient when he took the Player of the Year trophy in 1975-76.

Since then, we've had another four Player of the Year gongs and five Young Players, including four Young Players in the last five years - Kyle Walker, Gareth Bale, Harry Kane and Dele Alli. That was after a gap of 31 years between Glenn Hoddle (1980) and Kyle (2011).

Meanwhile, our four players in the PFA Team of the Year is a club record for the top flight.

Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Danny Rose all made it into their fellow professionals' representative 11.

Here's our PFA history, from individual winners to team representatives...
