The English top-flight has nominated the eight standout performers for the 2021/22 Player of the Season award.

Manchester City and Liverpool have two players each nominated for Premier League Player of the Season in Kevin De Bruyne, Joao Cancelo, Mohamed Salah, and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Combined, these four players have supplied 80 goals in the league this season.

There was, however, no place on the shortlist for Aprilโ€™s Player of the Month Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United or Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane.

Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son made the final cut though. The South Korea international is just one goal behind Salah in the Golden Boot race, having scored 21 times. Joining him from north London is Arsenalโ€™s 20-year-old winger Bukayo Saka.

Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse and West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen made up the rest of the shortlist.
