Phi Foden won the young player of the year for the 2021/2022 season. It is important to note that Foden has won this award two times consecutively, as he also won the young player of the year last season. This shows how Manchester city has developed as a team and their willingness to give young players a chance to exploit their potential.
However, considering other young players in the EPL, it is good to have a critical analysis of these players and who should have won the EPL young player of the year award. Starting with is Arsenal's young star, Bukayo Saka. Saka has been so impressive this season and he has been very key to Arteta's success this season. He has shown some qualities that needed recognition at the top level. If he maintains his current quality, he might one day win the young player of the year award.
Away from Saka, let us look at a player whom I personally think and feel that should have been awarded the Young player of the year award. This is non-other than Chelsea's superstar, Mason Mount. Mount has been very impressive this season, he has played very many games and helped Chelsea gain numerous victories across all the tournaments the club has been involved in this season. The reason I think that Mount should have been awarded the young player of the year is simple and clear;
To begin with, Mount has been involved in the club world cup, where he was able to showcase his talent on the world stage, and as a result, he won the Club world cup trophy. Something that gave him access to the gold badge this season.
Secondly, Maon Mount has scored more goals than Foden this season. Mount has scored 11 goals in the English Premier leagues while Foden has only scored 9 goals. More so, Mount has more assists this season compared to Foden; Mount has 10 assists this season compared to Foden's 5 assists. Therefore, in terms of quality and hard work, it is evident that Mason Mount has achieved more than Phil Foden and he should have been awarded the Young Player of the Year for the 2021/2022 season.
