Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon had a night to remember on Sunday evening, following his clean sweep of individual honours at the EFL awards.

The 17-year-old left-back-turned-winger has scored 14 goals and notched six assists for the Cottagers so far this season, with the club very much in contention for an automatic promotion place.

Sessegnon told the Telegraph earlier in March that he wanted to win the Premier League, the Champions League, and one day represent England.

His performances have been so good this season, BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson claims that he should be part of England's World Cup squad. The youngster also went on to pick up the Apprentice of the Year Award after making his way into the Club Developed XI.

Out of all the contenders, Harry Kane's inclusion has caused the biggest stir.

Among the other contenders, Tottenham striker Kane and Man City forward Sane are also on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award. The German flyer posted the fastest speed ever recorded in the Premier League this season, as well as becoming the youngest player to reach ten assists in the past ten Premier League seasons.

Raheem Sterling has also made a significant contribution to Man City's season with the England worldwide scoring 16 goals in the Premier League.
