Liverpool and Man Utd stars dominate POTY and YPOTY award nominations

    The nominations for the Premier League Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards have been announced, with title winners Liverpool dominating the senior award following their record-breaking title triumph.

    Jordan Henderson – recently crowned as the FWA Footballer of the Year – is one of three Reds’ players on the shortlist, the midfielder nominated alongside Liverpool teammates Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

    The trio will however face stiff competition from Manchester City‘s Kevin De Bruyne following a wonderful individual campaign; the Belgian equalling Thierry Henry’s long-standing record for most assists in a single Premier League season, in addition to his 13 goals from midfield.

    Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy is also nominated alongside Southampton’s Danny Ings, whilst Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope completes the shortlist after recording an impressive 15 clean sheets to narrowly miss out on the Premier League’s Golden Glove award.

    The Young Player of the Year shortlist is headed by Alexander-Arnold, who is the only player to feature on both shortlists, with eight players nominated, though it is a Manchester United contingent who dominate the nominees.

    Forwards Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and teenager Mason Greenwood are all included, whilst Red Devils goalkeeper Dean Henderson – who enjoyed a hugely impressive campaign on loan at Sheffield United – is also named amongst the potential winners.
