The Premier League has witnessed impressive and consistent performances from some young players over the course of the season and there’s no better time to examine the contenders for the Premier League Young Player of the Year for the current campaign which is gradually coming to an end.

Liverpool are almost there as far as their first Premier League title is concerned as they need just six wins from the final 13 games to make it happen. The Reds are still yet to suffer a league defeat this season with the last loss coming over a year ago via the 2-1 loss to holders Manchester City at the start of 2019.

Here are the contenders for the Premier League Player of the Year:

1. Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Liverpool and England right-back is a leading contender for the award after a stellar campaign till date. He has hardly missed any game for the Reds this season to highlight his importance to the team. The Liverpool Academy graduate has played his part in the Reds’ quest to win their maiden Premier League title. He has two goals and a whopping 11 assists in the league alone this. Trent Alexander-Arnold was named the December Player of the Month at the start of this year.

2. Marcus Rashford

The Manchester United has been the star player in an inconsistent team this season and his importance to the team has been greatly felt since his back injury in January. The Red Devils are yet to score a single league goal since that injury. Rashford has 19 goals in all competitions.

3. Tammy Abraham

The Chelsea striker has led the line well for his team upon his return from a loan spell at Aston Villa at the end of last season. He has scored 15 goals in all competitions with 13 coming in the Premier League.
