As you can see in the below tweet, it features Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Harry Kane.
There are three other strikers in the running: Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United) and Romelu Lukaku (Everton).
Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is the current holder of the main PFA prize, having been recognised for his efforts in helping the Foxes to a remarkable Premier League title win last season.
Kante, who made the list past year based on his remarkable role for Leicester's impressive performance but did not make the top three, is the award favorite.
Alli and Kane will compete for the YPOY award against Manchester City's Leroy Sane, Sunderland's Jordan Pickford, and Burnley's Michael Keane.
But while Harry Kane has been shortlisted for both prestigious awards, Alli was overlooked for the senior trophy despite scoring 16 goals in 30 top-flight appearances this season. "I think it is very good news for us", he said.More news: For Better Or Worse, Trump And GOP Now Own Health Care
