Both Christian Pulisic and Cameron Carter-Vickers have been selected among the contenders, as well as a host of youngsters from the Premier League.
Italian outlet Tuttosport run the competition each year and in 2016 Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanchez won the accolade (he is also a nominee this season again) which crowns the best player under the age of 21 who is playing in a top-tier league in Europe.
Pulisic, 18, has starred for German giants Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League this season as well as becoming a key player for the USMNT. Looking down the list of almost 100 contenders, Pulisic is sure to be one of the favorites for the award alongside Kylian Mbappe of Monaco, Gianluigi Donnarumma of AC Milan and Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City.
Carter-Vickers, also 18, has become a regular member of Mauricio Pochettino‘s squad at Tottenham Hotspur and the young center back has featured in five games for Spurs this season. His development behind the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld continues and he is highly-regarded both in the U.S. and in England.
The likes of Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan, Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester City have multiple nominees with City having Gabriel Jesus, Tosin Adarabioyo, Pablo Maffeo and Enes Unal on the list.
Despite the possibility of European play firmly on the line, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp played a largely reserve lineup for the second straight match.
It didn’t work so well last time out. This time, Jordan Ibe ensured a point, but it wasn’t enough to grab Europa League play as the draw means Liverpool finish eighth, outside a possible Europa League place, leaving them with Champions League or bust.
West Brom took the lead on 14 minutes as 17-year-old Jonathan Leko absolutely carved up the Liverpool barricade, cutting down the middle and finding Salomon Rondon who beat Adam Bogdan at his near post to open the scoring.
1 – WBA's Jonathan Leko is the first player born in 1999 to assist a Premier League goal. Party.
It would only last until the 23rd minute, when Jordan Ibe brought Liverpool level all on his own. He picked up a pass over the halfway line on the right, and with acres of space, he charged forward, cut inside, and rifled into the bottom corner to bring Liverpool level.
Straight off halftime, West Brom nearly went back on top off a set-piece. A free-kick from a good distance out floated into the box, glancing off the head of Rondon. The Venezuelan nearly started celebrating, but the ball clanged the far post and came back out, and his off-balance follow up skied over.
The home side had yet another chance on the hour mark. A right-sided cross from Craig Dawson fizzed across the face of goal, just out of reach of Rondon who got a slight touch with his head, but not enough to put it on net. The touch from Rondon also put off Craig Gardner unmarked at the far post, who may have had a shot to touch home had it not glanced off the first man.
The Baggies continued to push for a winner, with a 67th minute corner coming close, but as Dawson rose to meet it, he collided with Bogdan and was unable to make contact.
A draw means Liverpool finishes the year in eighth on 60 points, two back of West Ham in 7th and three behind Southampton and Manchester United. A one-goal win would have put them level with West Ham and potentially in need of a playoff, while a two-goal or more win would have given them 7th place. 7th position only becomes a Europa League position should Manchester United win the FA Cup.
West Brom, meanwhile, jumps Crystal Palace to finish in 14th on 43 points.
West Ham beat West Bromwich Albion 3-0 at the Hawthorns on Saturday to keep their top four hopes alive.
Slaven Billic’s side raced into a two-goal lead at half time as Cheikhou Kouyate and Mark Noble each grabbed a goal. Noble then added another, his fourth in his last two games, to seal the deal as Dimitri Payet helped himself to another two assists.
The win pushes West Ham up to fifth place on 59 points, above Manchester United on goal difference although the Red Devils has a game in hand on them. West Brom remain on 41 points.
A tackle in midfield saw the ball ricochet to Payet out wide and his cross found Kouyate who headed the ball back where it came from and into the far corner. 1-0.
Before half time Kouyate turned from scorer to creator as he surged into the box and set up Noble. West Ham’s captain had a loose first touch but his second saw him prod the ball into the far corner. 2-0 right on half time.
