PFA Young Player of the Year

The start of the 2019/20 season is just a few short weeks away and the anticipation is beginning to reach fever pitch. There are so many questions to be answered: Who will win the battle between Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table? How will Chelsea legend Frank Lampard fare back at his spiritual home? Can anyone break the fabled ‘top 6’ mould? And who will be this season’s standout young player?

With regards to the last of these questions, the race is wide open.

Last year’s winner of the PFA Young Player of the Year Award was Manchester City’s starlet Raheem Sterling. Sterling was not only superb on the pitch – he registered 17 goals throughout the season – but off it as well, he was a crusader for racial fairness and equality all season long and has matured into a truly world-class young footballer. It s widely expected that this year, Sterling will be competing in the main category of the award. This year therefore, the race is well and truly wide open.

Let’s take a look at some of the nominees…

Aaron Wan Bissaka: The young English right full-back earned many plaudits with his brilliant defensive performance at Crystal Palace last season, so much so in fact that he earned himself a forty-five million pound move to Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Manchester United in this summer’s transfer window. The weight of expectation will be a lot to handle, given the astronomical transfer fee, but based on the evidence available to us so far, one can only expect that Wan-Bissaka will excel again this season. Of course, Manchester United have struggled defensively in recent years and this summer they have tried to rectify this with a number of transfers, if Wan-Bissaka can help mend their frailties there’s no reason to expect he won’t be named PFA Young Player of the Year this season.

Trent Alexander Arnold: Another right full-back, Alexander Arnold enjoyed what will be remembered as his breakout season with Liverpool last year. His highlight will undoubtedly be the sneaky corner routine which was finished off by Divock Origi in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona – this is the type of play that typifies the young Liverpool local’s best qualities. His footballing intelligence is plain to see, his crossing ability is second to none and he shows a level of maturity which is remarkable for a man of his age. Jürgen Klopp sees him as one of his side’s star players, if Liverpool can go on to win the title this year – a very real possibility – one would guess that Trent would have a large part to play with his marauding play from full-back. With Van Dijk next to him in Liverpool’s defence, Van Dijk will have the license to express himself and play the outstanding football that, over the past year, he has proved he is more than capable of delivering.

Leroy Sane: It is truly bizarre that the young German was not included in his nation’s squad for the World Cup last summer – he has blossomed into a dynamite explosion of a player. Some have questioned his attitude, but his pace, his shooting ability and his power are not in doubt. Hopefully, for Manchester City fans at least, this can be the year that he pushes on and shows the world that he is ready to compete at the pinnacle of world football. His wide play and inter-passing demonstrate that he has the attributes to do so. If he can maximize these talents then he is capable of competing, not just for the Young Player’s Award, but for the main award as well. Every Premier League full-back will dread the prospect of facing his blistering speed and his mind-boggling skill this year. Raheem Sterling has already illustrated how players at Manchester City have the perfect springboard to go from talented young players to truly elite level superstars. Of course, Sane will have a lot of healthy competition which, at his precocious age, will surely raise his level significantly. For me, Leroy Sane is this year’s favourite to be crowned Premier League Young Player of the Year.

So these are the frontrunners. It goes without saying that there are a number of other players who stand a good chance. Christian Pulisic, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus, for example, will all believe they’re in with a real shot at the Young Player’s Award. Who will win this illustrious honour? Who can say? After all, there is a bucket load of young incredible talent on display. One thing is for sure however, it’s going to be an incredible season.
