Hublot Young Player shortlist

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE)
P33 W16 D6 L11 G16

The Premier League's sixth-highest goalscorer in 2020/21, Calvert-Lewin led Everton's line with power and precise finishing. He helped the Toffees challenge for the European places before they finished the season in 10th position.

Ruben Dias (MCI)
P32 W23 D5 L4 G1 CS15

Dias was a rock at the back for champions Manchester City following his arrival last September. The centre-back played a starring role in the division’s best defence on the way to claiming the Premier League Trophy.

Phil Foden (MCI)
P28 W19 D3 L6 G9 A5

Producing 14 goal involvements in 17 starts and 11 appearances off the bench, Foden played an instrumental role in his and Man City's third PL title in four seasons.

Illan Meslier (LEE)
P35 W16 D5 L14 CS11 S140

The French goalkeeper impressed in his debut PL campaign. His total of 140 saves was only beaten by three others as he proved pivotal in promoted Leeds United's ninth-place finish.

Mason Mount (CHE)
P36 W17 D10 L9 G6 A5

Only one younger player, Dwight McNeil, matched the 22-year-old midfielder's 36 appearances in 2020/21. He was at the heart of Chelsea's top-four finish and was involved in 11 goals.

Marcus Rashford (MUN)
P37 W20 D11 L6 G11 A9

Registering the most goal involvements of any Hublot Young Player of the Season contender, Rashford played all but one of Manchester United's matches as they finished runners-up.

Declan Rice (WHU)
P32 W16 D8 L8 G2 A1

Rice played an integral role alongside Tomas Soucek in the centre of West Ham United's midfield. He won 59 tackles and completed 88 per cent of his passes as the Hammers finished sixth and qualified for Europe.

Bukayo Saka (ARS)
P32 W15 D6 L11 G5 A3

At 19 years of age and the youngest of the nominees, Arsenal's wing-back and attacking midfielder scored five times and produced three assists in a superb campaign.
