Premier League Season Awards

We recognise the individuals who enjoyed outstanding 2019/20 campaigns with some milestone achievements and remarkable contributions.

Manchester City v Norwich City - Premier League

EA SPORTS Player of the Season - Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne claimed the EA SPORTS Player of the Season award for the first time after a sensational season for Manchester City.

The Belgian scored 13 goals, winning the Budweiser Goal of the Season award twice.

The midfielder also provided 20 assists, equalling Arsenal legend Thierry Henry's single-season record from 2002/03.

Barclays Manager of the Season - Jurgen Klopp

Having led Liverpool to their first Premier League title, Klopp has cemented his status as a club legend.

Under his stewardship, the Reds lost only one game before the season was suspended in March, and Liverpool became champions quickly after the restart, with a host of club records broken along the way.

They remained unbeaten in the League at Anfield for a third consecutive season - the first time they have achieved this in the club's history. 

Klopp's side amassed 99 points, a club record, and also equalled Man City's Premier League high of 32 wins in a single campaign.

Budweiser Goal of the Season - Son Heung-min

A prolific scorer for Tottenham Hotspur, Son has netted his fair share of eye-catching strikes as he has hit double figures in each of the last four seasons.

His solo effort against Burnley in December was nothing short of world class, topping off a skilful run from deep inside his own half with the coolest of finishes.

TAG Heuer Young Player of the Season - Trent Alexander-Arnold

One of six English players on the eight-man shortlist for the inaugural TAG Heuer Young Player of the Season award, Alexander-Arnold was integral in Liverpool becoming champions for the first time in 30 years.

Part of the League's tightest defence, he earned 12 clean sheets, but was equally impressive as an attacking force, providing 13 assists and scoring four times.

Cadbury Golden Boot - Jamie Vardy

Leicester City's Jamie Vardy won his first Cadbury Golden Boot award after scoring 23 goals in a fantastic season that also saw him surpass 100 Premier League goals.

At 33, Vardy is the oldest player to win the accolade. He ended the campaign a goal ahead of Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Southampton striker Danny Ings.

Cadbury Playmaker of the Season - Kevin De Bruyne

De Bruyne is the first man to win the Cadbury Playmaker of the Season award for a second time, after first achieving the accolade in 2017/18.

Cadbury Golden Glove - Ederson

A clean sheet against Norwich City on the final day of the 2019/20 season saw Manchester City's Ederson win the Cadbury Golden Glove award.

He recorded his 16th clean sheet of the campaign in his side's 5-0 win over Norwich City, to move one ahead of Burnley's Nick Pope.

Premier League 2 Player of the Season - Curtis Jones

It was a dream breakthrough campaign for the Liverpool midfielder, who won a Premier League winner's medal and played a starring role at Under-23 level.

He made six League appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side, scoring once, and netted nine goals in Premier League 2 Division 1.

Did you know?

Scott McTominay scored Manchester United's 2,000th Premier League goal against Norwich in October, the first club to reach that milestone.

Wolverhampton Wanderers picked up 21 points from losing positions, the best of any side in the Premier League.

Sergio Aguero's hat-trick against Aston Villa in January was his 12th in the Premier League, more than any other player in the history of the competition.

Mohamed Salah reached a combined total of 100 Premier League goals and assists in the joint-second fewest appearances in the competition. He reached the milestone on his 116th match, the same as Eric Cantona and bettered only by Alan Shearer (100 matches).

Frank Lampard finished fourth with Chelsea in his first ever Premier League campaign as head coach, the highest finish for an English manager in their debut season since Frank Clark led Nottingham Forest to third place in 1994/95.

Danny Ings became the 20th different Englishman to score 20+ goals in a single Premier League season.
