English Premier League: 2019/20 award nominees revealed

The English Premier League have revealed the nominees for the various 2019/20 season awards.

The champions Liverpool are well represented with Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold being named among the seven nominees for the coveted 2019/20 Premier League Player of the Season award.

League runners-up Manchester City are represented by just Kevin De Bruyne following his record-equalling season in which he recorded 20 assists while the top two goalscorers in the league in Jamie Vardy and Danny Ings also feature on the nominees list.

The list is completed by arguably the surprise package of the season in Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope. Only Manchester City’s Ederson accumulated more cleansheets than Pope’s 15.

Jurgen Klopp has been nominated for the Coach of the season award after guiding Liverpool to a maiden English Premier League title while breaking a number of other records in the process.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard’s fine debut season in the hot-seat also sees him make the cut while Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder has been acknowledged for guiding his team to a 9th place finish following their promotion to the league just last season.

The fourth and final Coach of the Season nominee is Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers guided Leicester back into European football after qualifying for the UEFA Europa League.
