West Ham midfielder Bowen; Liverpool ace Salah among nominees for Premier League Player of the Season

West Ham midfielder Jarrod Bowen has been shortlisted for the Premier League Player of the Season award.

Bowen has enjoyed a superb 2021/22 campaign, scoring ten goals and registering ten assists to become just the second West Ham player to achieve that feat in the competition's 30-year history.

Only Paolo Di Canio, in 1999/00, previously reached double figures in goals and assists in the same season, while only Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, who is also nominated for the award, has passed ten goals and assists this term.

Alongside Salah, Bowen also faces competition from Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, Manchester City duo João Cancelo and Kevin De Bruyne, Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka, Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min and Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse.

The winner will be voted by supporters.

The Premier League Player of the Season will be announced on Sunday 21 May at 11am BST.
