PFA Young Player of the Year: Which ‘youngster will scoop prize’ this season?



We’re just over the halfway mark of another Premier League season, where once again countless young players have stamped their authority on the pitch for their respective clubs.

Those players will be doing all they can to help their side finish in a strong position come May. But they may also have one eye on the 2019/20 PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Liverpool have soared to the top of the pile and haven’t looked back. And that’s thanks to the goals of their front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. But it’s also due to the stunning performances from right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

KYIV, UKRAINE – MAY 26, 2018: Roberto Firmino of Liverpool runs during the UEFA Champions League Final 2018 game against Real Madrid at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv. Liverpool lost 1-3

The 21-year-old has ten assists to help his side to top spot. He’s currently 1/4 to be awarded with the PFA Young Player of the Year trophy.

But there will be several players hot on his heels in the pursuit of the award. And one of those is Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who has certainly hit the ground running on his return to the top-flight. 

The 22-year-old has 12 league goals this season, and is 9/1 to receive the honour. His Blues team-mate Mason Mount has also been in fine form in his first Premier League campaign. He’s available at 14/1.

Also at 14/1 is Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford. The youngster is enjoying his best return in front of goal for the club this season with 12 league goals to his name.

Also in the running are Leicester duo James Maddison and Ben Chilwell. The former is 10/1 to pick up the award, with the latter available at 33/1. 

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is another who has been in inspired form of late. He’s been one of the main men for new boss Jose Mourinho, and boasts six goals and three assists for the campaign so far. 

Alli can be backed at 25/1 to receive the honour. 

Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish is another in the running. He’s already got six goals and five assists for his side, and is currently 33/1 to secure the prestigious award.

Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling clinched the award last time out for his performances throughout the 2018/19 campaign. He’ll be vying for the PFA Player of the Year trophy this time around. But his younger team-mate Gabriel Jesus is well in the mix for the more youthful award.

The Brazilian striker has eight league goals this season, and has been keeping Sergio Aguero on his toes as he pushes for a starting role. The 22-year-old is currently 40/1 to clinch the PFA Young Player of the Year award for his displays in a City shirt in the 2019/20 campaign.
