Sport: Erling Braut Haaland has scored 27 goals and was also nominated, but did not receive the award for the second year in a row. The Norwegian was named player of the year and young player of the year last year, but this year it was instead his former team-mate in Manchester City, informs the Premier League.

It is the fans who vote for the winner of the award, which goes to a player who is 23 years of age or younger. Palmer is the first Chelsea player to win the award which was first presented in the 2019/20 season.

Palmer made the transition from City to Chelsea last summer and has been the blue-clad team’s clear best player this season.

Palmer can also be voted as player of the year. There he has competition from Haaland, Martin Ødegaard, Phil Foden, Declan Rice, Alexander Isak, Virgil van Dijk and Ollie Watkins. The winner will be announced on Saturday morning.

Both Haaland and Ødegaard can go to the top of the PL with their teams this season. Haaland and City will win the title if they beat West Ham, while Arsenal must beat Everton and at the same time hope that City concede points.
