The Premier League have published their list of nominees for the Player of the Season and Manager of the Season awards.

Chelsea and Tottenham predictably head the shortlist for both awards, with three players apiece and both Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pochettino named.

N’Golo Kante is the favourite to win the player’s award, having already lifted the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Associations gongs this campaign.

Chelsea teammates Eden Hazard and Cesar Azpilicueta are also in the running.

Tottenham trio Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen have also been named, while Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Everton forward Romelu Lukaku round off the eight-strong shortlist.

Conte and Pochettino are joined on the managerial shortlist by Paul Clement, who guided Swansea to Premier League safety after being appointed in January.

Sean Dyche of Burnley, Eddie Howe of Bournemouth and West Brom’s Tony Pulis are also on the six-man shortlist.
