7 7 James Hopper (digital content producer) – Young Player of the Year = Ademola Lookman – Everton have been busy in the market, but Lookman could be their standout player and possibly earn a place in Englands World Cup squad, depending on his impact. Charli Casey (staff writer) – Young Player of the Year = Harry Winks – I relished watching Winks play before injury cruelly ended his season in April. The trust Mauricio Pochettino had placed in him often bringing him on in the final quarter of the game to calm proceedings from midfield spoke volumes. With Spurs needing to push on in Europe, his importance to the team should grow. Anton Stanley (staff writer) – Young Player of the Year = Gabriel Jesus – If he picks up where he left off last year, the Brazil star could have a brilliant campaign with Manchester City, who I believe will win the Premier League title. With Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy on the flanks supplying crosses, while Bernardo and David Silva thread through balls, he could thrill in the top-flight. 7 Alex Varney (senior sports writer) – Young Player of the Year = Leroy Sane – Leroy Sane. The young winger showed huge promise last season expect him to be even better in 2017/18. The Premier League 2017/18 season is back and, just like everyone else, we’re excited about the next 38 gameweeks.It’s set to be a brilliant new campaign with a huge amount of transfers as the top flight’s teams battle for supremacy, but every now and again a starlet emerges and steals the limelight.Each club will need to have a difference maker if they’re going to have any kind of success, but who will be the Young Player of the Year?Last season it was Dele Alli, and talkSPORT’s top writers have picked who they believe will be the best of the lot this season.Click the right arrow above to find out who’s been chosen… 7 7 7 7 Alasdair Hooper (digital content producer) – Young Player of the Year = Gabriel Jesus – This could be his break out year after his impressive showings last year prior to injury. The potential the Brazilian has is unreal. Damian Mannion (senior staff writer) – Young Player of the Year = Gabriel Jesus – If he continues in the same fashion then hes going to be a joy to watch this season. Will score plenty with those creative players behind him. Michael Benson (staff writer/AV producer) – Young Player of the Year = Gabriel Jesus – Jesus has only been in England since January, he’s been injured for most of that time, and yet still managed to displace Man City legend Sergio Aguero in his first half-season. Given a consistent run in the Premier League, I believe this young Brazilian will overshadow all City’s rivals’ new acquisitions.
