The efforts these players have put forth this season deserve recognition and praise

The Premier League is considered as one of the best leagues in the world. The players often find it difficult to live up to their name because they struggle to meet the demands of the league. Nevertheless, we have three young players whose performances in the Premier League have been a revelation. In his first season in the Premier League, Cole Palmer has been a revelation for Chelsea since signing for the club during the summer window.

Their performances continue to mesmerize the fans as they have already established themselves as some of the best players in the league. The Premier League presents Young Player of the Year awards every year to deserving players who continue to be an integral part of their team’s success. They make an impression day in and day out through their all-around performance as well as the goals they score and the assists they provide to help their respective team. 

Let’s take a look at the three favourites to win the Premier League Young Player of the Year award in 2023-24:

3. Phil Foden

Phil Foden has eclipsed Haaland and De Bruyne as the team’s danger man this season. In addition to scoring 16 goals, he has also assisted 8 more. Throughout this season, he has played a crucial role in several important matches, both in the league and in the Champions League. His performances this season have taken him to the forefront of the team. 

Having already won the Premier League Young Player of the Season twice in a row, he is one of the clear favourites to complete the hat-trick this term. This season, he has already won the FWA Footballer of the Year award and is also one of favourites for winning the Best and Young Player awards. As the title race intensifies, he will be among the players to watch, along with Saka, who will be his rival for this award, as he will aim to play an important role in the upcoming matches. 

2. Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka is having an incredible season with the Gunners, who are among the title favourites this year. His exploits on the right wing have earned him a deserved shout for this award. With his explosive showings from the right wing over the past two seasons, he has emerged as one of the best wingers in the league. He has scored 16 goals this season while also assisting 9 others. 

The ease by which he gets past opponents is a treat to watch as opponents get confused with his trickery as he is comfortable with both feet. In the final third, he has been a key member of the team thanks to his speed and directness. He will surely aim to win the Premier League this time after narrowly missing out last year. 

1. Cole Palmer

He has been a great signing for Chelsea. Todd Boehly should be commended for this acquisition, as he has already established himself as one of the team’s most important players. Cole Palmer has been a revelation for Chelsea this season as he has played a crucial role in the team’s push for the European places. He has scored 21 goals in the league this season and is 3 goals behind Haaland.

With his outstanding performances, he has deservedly been recognized for both the Young Player and Player of the Season awards. He has emerged as the architect of this Chelsea side, creating chances for the team with every attacking move starting with him. In various pressure situations, he has demonstrated maturity beyond his age by stepping up for the team.
