Wed 17 March 2021, 16:02|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Erik Lamela and Angela Addison have all received nominations in the 2021 London Football Awards.
Independently judged by figures across the game in the capital, the annual awards commend the very best of football in London over the course of a season.
Prolific duo Harry and Sonny, who have scored 44 goals between them in all competitions already this season, will be battling it out for the ‘Premier League Player of the Year’ award.
The pair have both previously won the award in their Spurs careers, with England skipper Harry having scooped the honour in 2018, while South Korea captain Son picked up the prize the following year. For this season’s award, they will be up against West Ham’s Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, as well as Chelsea’s Mason Mount
Following her bright showings for Spurs Women so far this campaign, 21-year-old forward Angela is in the running for ‘Women’s Young Player of the Year’ with competition from Chelsea’s Niamh Charles and Arsenal’s Malin Gut.
Erik, meanwhile, is up for ‘Goal of the Year’ following his spectacular ‘rabona’ against Arsenal on Sunday. The Argentina international is up against goals from West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini (against us), Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze (versus Sheffield United), Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud (versus Atletico Madrid) and former Hammer Sebastian Haller (versus Crystal Palace).
Son is the current holder of the award having been presented with the prize last year following his unforgettable solo effort against Burnley in December, 2019 – a strike which, of course, also went on to win the Puskas Award.
This year's winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on Tuesday 27 April, beginning at 7pm.
