Phil Foden Wins Young Player Of The Season Award

Champions Manchester City dominated the Premier League end-of-season awards as Phil Foden has been named Young Player of the Season.

Ruben Dias and Pep Guardiola also picked up prizes for the 2020/21 campaign.

Dias was named the Premier League Player of the Season, while City boss Guardiola was picked as the Manager of the Season.

Foden picked up the award for Young Player of the Season ahead of City team-mate Dias, who was already nominated, as well as Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Illan Meslier, Marcus Rashford, Mason Mount, Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka.

The 21-year-old was involved in 14 Premier League goals in 17 starts and 11 substitute appearances across the campaign as he established himself as a key member of the City midfield following the departure of David Silva.
