(Almost) every Premier League club’s official player of the year

Date published: Sunday 20th May 2018 2:58

ARSENAL: Aaron Ramsey
Edging out Mesut Ozil and Nacho Monreal was Ramsey, who scored 11 goals this season, including a hat-trick against Everton in March.

BOURNEMOUTH: Nathan Ake
The Cherries broke their transfer record to sign the young Dutchman, and the £20m man was Players’ and Supporters’ Player of the Year in his first full season.

BRIGHTON: Pascal Gross
The Premier League’s bargain signing of last summer was the fans’ choice for player of the season for his eight assists, though the German and his fellow players voted for Lewis Dunk.

BURNLEY: Nick Pope
What a season. He cleaned up at the Burnley awards do with both the fans’ and the players’ award after his 12 clean sheets helped the Clarets into the Europa League and himself into the England squad.

CHELSEA: N’Golo Kante
In a not-quite season for Chelsea, the Frenchman was rewarded or his consistency, though the players intriguingly voted for Willian.

CRYSTAL PALACE: Wilfried Zaha
Does he get to keep it now? He has won it three times in a row and it is richly deserved after his nine goals were key to Palace’s survival this season.

EVERTON: Jordan Pickford
It’s usually a pretty bad sign when the goalkeeper wins the player of the year award. Kudos to Pickford though, for being excellent in his first season. The World Cup beckons.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN: Christopher Schindler
The classy German centre-back had a phenomenal season and picked up the Hargreaves Memorial Player of the Year as well as the support of his peers with the Players’ Player gong.

LEICESTER CITY: Harry Maguire
Another centre-half winning a double ahead of Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi, who won the Young Player award for the second successive season.

LIVERPOOL: Mo Salah
Who else?

MANCHESTER CITY: Kevin De Bruyne
At last, an award that cannot be claimed at the last minute by the fella above. The assist machine beat off competition from Leroy Sane and David Silva.

MANCHESTER UNITED: David De Gea
“I think when a goalkeeper is a player of the season, it’s because something is wrong.” Read more here.

NEWCASTLE UNITED: Not yet known.

SOUTHAMPTON: Alex McCarthy
That’s got to hurt Fraser Forster. The goalkeeper swept the board on awards night despite playing just half the season in the sticks.

STOKE CITY: N/A
Nobody deserved any credit at all so it was cancelled.

SWANSEA CITY: Lucasz Fabianski
There was very little credit deserved at all but a large slice must go to goalkeeper Fabianski, who won the award ahead of Players’ Player Jordan Ayew.

TOTTENHAM: Jan Vertonghen
The One Hotspur player of the season was the big Belgian, who was also our choice for Premier League central defender of the season.

WATFORD: Abdoulaye Doucure
Both the Graham Taylor OBE Player of the Season and the Players’ Player of the Season went to the Frenchman, who was somehow the Hornets’ top scorer with seven goals.

WEST BROM: As yet unknown.

WEST HAM: Marko Arnautovic
He had been booed off the pitch by fans earlier in the season but the Austrian became Hammer of the Year after scoring 11 Premier League goals in a bizarre season.
