How the Premier League's awards work

The Premier League is full of exciting young talent and, in a new monthly YouTube series "Rising Stars", we look at those who are in contention to be named the 2020/21 Hublot Young Player of the Season.

The award, won last season by Trent Alexander-Arnold, is presented to the best-performing player who was aged 23 or younger at the start of the season.

It is sponsored by Hublot, the Official Timekeeper of the Premier League. 

In the first "Rising Stars", Premier League Champion Alan Shearer casts his expert eye over four contenders for the award: Aston Villa forward Ollie Watkins, Chelsea defender Reece James, Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

Presenters David Alorka and Kenzie Benali also compare this crop of stars to Premier League legends of the past such as Petr Cech and Ruud van Nistelrooy and ask, "Who did it better?"
