2 min read

Manchester United fans are gutted that Bruno Fernandes hasn’t been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Season award.

With the season finally concluded, the contenders to win the the accolade for the best player of the season were revealed on Friday. Liverpool trio Trent Alexander-Arnold, Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson will battle it out with Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne for the gong, while striker duo Jamie Vardy and Danny Ings, as well as Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, have all also been shown recognition.

Although Fernandes only arrived at United in the January transfer window, which is likely the biggest reason he was excluded, he had a massive impact in the league and won the Player of the Month twice, in February and June.

The Portuguese turned United’s fortunes around thanks to his clinical contributions in the final third, which saw him bag eight goals and seven assists in just 14 games, and he is still to taste defeat in the league.

Fernandes may have only been in the Premier League for less than half of the season, but supporters still feel that he did enough to be regarded as one of the best players of the campaign.

United also missed out on a nomination for the Manager of the Season, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was beaten out by Jurgen Klopp, Chris Wilder, Frank Lampard and Brendan Rodgers.

They were more fortunate in the Young Player of the Season award nominations, however, with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and out-on-loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson all making the cut. They will compete with Alexander-Arnold, Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic for the award.
