Our home-grown striker has enjoyed another phenomenal year, capped by winning a second consecutive Premier League Golden Boot at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Harry now takes pride of place on a 12-person shortlist for the coveted award, which has been won by tennis star Andy Murray in three of the last four years. F1 ace Lewis Hamilton won in 2014.

The public will decide this year’s winner by phone and online during a special live television show in front of an audience of nearly 11,000 people at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Sunday 17 December, the night after we take on Manchester City at the Etihad.

A 12-person panel of broadcasters, journalists and former sports stars put the shortlist together.

Joining Harry as nominees are Elise Christie (short track speed skating), Sir Mo Farah (athletics), Chris Froome (cycling), Lewis Hamilton (F1), Anthony Joshua (boxing), Johanna Konta (tennis), Jonnie Peacock (para-athletics), Adam Peaty (swimming), Jonathan Rea (motorcycling), Anya Shrubsole (cricket) and Bianca Walkden (taekwondo).
