Fans had until 18:00 BST on Monday 10 August to vote for their favourite on the EA SPORTS website.

The votes of the public were combined with those of the 20 club captains and a panel of football experts to decide the winner. 

EA SPORTS Player shortlist
Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV)

The Liverpool right-back played in every match of the title-winning season and was a key figure at both ends of the pitch. He provided 13 assists, the second-highest total in the Premier League, while also scoring four goals and earning 12 clean sheets. 

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI)

The Belgian set up 20 goals in 2019/20, equalling the Premier League record for a single season, and scored 13 himself. Two of his strikes won the Budweiser Goal of the Month award, and he was unfortunate not to have an even higher goal tally, having hit the woodwork six times.

Jordan Henderson (LIV)

Liverpool's captain was a driving force on and off the pitch. He won almost two-thirds of his tackles and recovered possession for his team 183 times during the campaign, while he also contributed four goals and five assists. Two of his goals came in 2-1 wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Danny Ings (SOU)

The Southampton striker doubled his best-ever goal tally for a season, scoring 22 times, just one fewer than Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy. When his two assists are added, Ings either scored or set up 47 per cent of Saints' goals in 2019/20.

Sadio Mane (LIV)

The Senegalese attacker scored 18 goals and added seven assists, often providing decisive moments of quality in close contests. He scored winners in five matches and won the stoppage-time penalty that secured a late victory over Leicester City.

Nick Pope (BUR)

Burnley's goalkeeper kept 15 clean sheets, just one fewer than Golden Glove winner Ederson. Notably, Pope made 120 saves during the season, 52 more than the Manchester City No 1.

Jamie Vardy (LEI)

The Premier League's top scorer with 23 goals, the Leicester striker scored 11 times with his right foot and nine times with his left. He was also a team player, delivering 31 crosses and creating 12 big chances, ultimately claiming five assists.
