Arsenal – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The Gabon striker has been sensational ever since his £56million January switch from Dortmund in 2018.
He scored 29 goals this season and fired in a double to win the FA Cup for the Gunners earlier this month.
There’s no question he deserves the award for Arsenal, though teenager Bukayo Saka deserves an honourable mention for a brilliant breakthrough season, too.
Aston Villa – Jack Grealish
Without their skipper the club would be in the Championship.
Grealish scored the most goals with eight, provided the most assists with six, and was central to any creativity Dean Smith’s men had all season.
The 24-year-old deserves a move and Manchester United looks likely to be his next destination.
Bournemouth – Aaron Ramsdale
In what has been a dismal season for the Cherries, goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale can hold his head high.
The 22-year-old featured in all but one of his side’s league matches this season and put in a number of excellent displays in what have been difficult circumstances for the south coast club.
Had Ramsdale been absent between the sticks, Bournemouth may have been relegated to the Championship a lot sooner.
Burnley – Nick Pope
The 27-year-old has made 82 appearances in all competitions for the Clarets since joining from Charlton in 2016 and has been a standout performer in Sean Dyche’s XI ever since he replaced Tom Heaton.
This season he has been phenomenal and his 15 clean sheets is only better by Man City’s Ederson on 16.
Pope did enough to earn a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad in 2018 and many believe he should replace Jordan Pickford in goal at Euro 2021 – though Sheffield United ace Dean Henderson is also competing for that spot.
Crystal Palace – Jordan Ayew
Remarkably, the Ghanaian striker netted 30 per cent of Palace’s goals this season.
The Eagles would be 17 points worse off without the brilliant form of their £2.5m signing from Swansea.
He certainly dished a big two fingers to all those who doubted his Premier League credentials last season.
Leicester – Jamie Vardy
At the ripe age of 33, Vardy’s appetite for goals is as strong as ever.
The Foxes’ talisman fired on all cylinders once again this season, thriving under Brendan Rodgers as they cemented European football at the King Power.
The former Fleetwood Town striker won his first Golden Boot in a campaign where he struck 23 goals.
Newcastle – Martin Dubravka
Since making his debut in a man-of-the-match display against Manchester United two weeks after joining, goalkeeper Dubravka hasn’t missed a game for the Magpies in the Premier League.
The Slovakian shot stopper recorded 11 clean sheets this term and made a staggering 137 saves – the most of any ‘keeper in the top flight by a distance.
Southampton – Danny Ings
At the end of October, it was looking bleak for the Saints following a humiliation on a wet and wild Friday.
They dropped to 18th in the Premier League table, had the joint-worst goal difference after 10 matches and had just been beaten 9-0 by Leicester City at St Mary’s.
However, Ings, with 22 strikes this term, galvanised Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men to put them on course for an astonishing turnaround.
Sheffield United – Chris Basham
The 32-year-old is a worthy winner for the Blades purely for just how consistent he has been.
Not only did he perform excellently in his normal defensive responsibilities, he was also a force going forward as Chris Wilder’s demonstrated their unique but highly effective playing style in the Premier League for the first time.
Norwich – Tim Krul
The Canaries’ no.1 produced a string of outstanding performances in goal for the Norfolk club.
Two penalty saves in the game against Manchester United at Carrow Road and a heroic display in the FA Cup fifth round shootout triumph over Tottenham in March were two of his best performances.
Tottenham – Son Heung-Min
With 11 goals and ten assists in 30 matches this season, Son is a worthy winner of Spurs’ individual gong.
The South Korean forward is also a strong contender for Goal of the Season for his incredible solo effort against Burnley.
Picking up the ball just outside our area, the 28-year-old left six Burnley players in his wake in an 80-yard dash to goal, skipped past the final tackle from Erik Pieters before composing himself to slot past Pope.
