Manchester City's Lauren Hemp and Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold have been crowned PFA Young Player of the Year for 2020

Manchester City's Lauren Hemp and Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold have been crowned PFA Young Player of the Year for 2020. 

Liverpool's accomplished full-back Alexander-Arnold scooped the men's young player of the year award, seeing off Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, Chelsea's Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, and Arsenal's Bukayo Saka. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold, PFA Young Player of the Year

Alexander-Arnold played a part in 12 clean sheets in Liverpool's league triumph, and also laid on 13 assists and four goals, continuing to develop his already deadly all-court game.

The 21-year-old warned Liverpool's rivals that German boss Klopp's side were nowhere near satisfied with their successes to date.

“That first taste of success and being able to lift trophies, you never get over that, and the disappointments that come along the way too feed that hunger as well,” said Alexander-Arnold.

“So it's probably a perfect blend of wanting to feel the success and not wanting to feel that disappointment that we've felt in the past.

“And I think as a team and individually the mentality is to keep going and to keep striving forward, because we're not done yet.”

Lauren Hemp, PFA Young Player of the Year

Manchester City's Lauren Hemp collected the women's young player prize, beating team-mates Chloe Kelly, Georgia Stanway and Ellie Roebuck, with Chelsea's Erin Cuthbert and Manchester United's Lauren James also shortlisted.

City on Tuesday completed the re-signing of England defender Lucy Bronze from Lyon, and Hemp believes City is the place to be.

She said:: "At the moment I think it's the time to be at City, and I think people from the outside are looking and saying, 'Wow they are going to do well this season'.”
