Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has seen off competition from Manchester United‘s Marcus Rashford and Chelsea‘s Christian Pulisic to win the Premier League’s TAG Heuer Young Player of the Season award.
Alexander-Arnold, 21, was the only English player on the shortlist and becomes the first player to win the inaugural award.
The full-back was instrumental in helping Liverpool lift their first league title in 30 years and contributed 13 assists and four goals in the league.
The Premier League saw a rise in the number of young English players last season with more than a third who started eligible for selection for the national team.
A total of 62 homegrown players made their debuts last season — 21 more than the 2019-20 campaign.
