Joelinton dribbles against Manchester United

Most Premier League clubs have announced their player of the season. We take a look at the winners list so far.

 

Arsenal:
No news as yet, though the smart money is on Bukayo Saka retaining the trophy he won last season.

 

Aston Villa: Matty Cash
The right-back is the only Villa player to start all 38 Premier League games in the same season he made his international debut for Poland. Jacob Ramsey walked away with Players’ Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season.

 

Brighton: Marc Cucurella
The Spanish left-back’s brilliant maiden season in the Premier League was acknowledged by an awards double. Cucurella was named Seagulls’ Player of the Season by both supporters and his team-mates.

 

Brentford: Christian Norgaard
The Danish midfielder picked up gongs from the supporters and his teammates after a season in which he made more tackles than any other Premier League player.

 

Burnley: 
They will be in no rush to make this announcement. What price Nick Pope’s third award in five years before he buggers off?

 

Chelsea: Mason Mount
He was run close by Thiago Silva but Mount emerged victorious for the second successive season after notching 11 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League without any of us actually noticing.

 

Crystal Palace: Conor Gallagher
The on-loan midfielder won a third of the supporters’ vote, with Marc Geuhi raking in 24% and Tyrick Mitchell taking a 16% share. Mitchell was crowned Young Player of the Season at the end of a season all three Eagles became full England internationals.

 

Everton:
No news as yet; it’s a small field of candidates.

 

Leeds United:
No news as yet; it’s a small field of candidates.

 

Leicester City: James Maddison
Maddison scooped the Supporters’ Player of the Season award after 18 goals and 12 assists in all competitions. But the Leicester players voted for Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall as their best performer in a disappointing season.

 

Liverpool:
Yet to be announced by Mo Salah is surely a shoo-in for his third award in five seasons.

 

Manchester City: Kevin De Bruyne
For the fourth time. Which means he is now equally as good as Richard Dunne. Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez also made the three-man shortlist, which was created long before that final day shenanigans.

 

Manchester United:
The awards dinner has been scrapped so expect the Matt Busby trophy to be quietly handed to Ronaldo in a darkened corridor.

 

Newcastle: Joelinton
If you’d have told us – or anyone – prior to November that Joelinton would win Newcastle’s Player of the Season award as a midfielder having helped them to a potential top-half finish, you’d likely have been sectioned. But here we are…

 

Norwich: Teemu Pukki
Who else? Surely it’s time to jump off this particular merry-go-round.

 

Southampton: James Ward-Prowse
The England midfielder retain both his Fans’ Player of the Year award and Players’ Player of the Year from last season, making it a hat-trick of gongs with Goal of the Season award for this free-kick at Wolves.

 

Tottenham: Son Heung-min
The Spurs star took home all three of the club’s Player of the Season awards for the third time in four years. Steven Bergwijn claimed the Goal of the Season gong for his last-gasp madness at Leicester.

 

Watford: Hassane Kamara
The Graham Taylor Player of the Season award, voted for by fans, went to the Ivorian left-back, which is notable since he spent half of the campaign playing for Nice. Still, the Watford team is hardly a difficult field in which to stand out this season.

 

West Ham: Declan Rice
The England midfielder was named Hammer of the Year for the second time, beating Jarrod Bowen and Craig Dawson into second and third respectively. Ben Johnson won the inaugural Mark Noble Award for young player of the season.

 

Wolves: Jose Sa
The Portuguese keeper was named Player of the Season by supporters, which is hardly surprising given how impressive his first year in the Premier League has been. The stats suggest Sa conceded 9.2 goals fewer than he ought to have done, which is the best in league.
