Even I feel it has to be Harry Kane this season as he has performed exceptionally well, being the top scorer and having most assists.
I think David Moyes has been one of the best managers this season leading West Ham into the Europa League.
Under the management of David Moyes West Ham have set a new club record scoring 65 points in a single season. Its also their best league position since finishing 5th in 1998/99.
If West Ham had Jesse Lingard the entire season they could have been competing for the PL title.
The England international has been amazing since joining the club on loan in January. He has scored 9 goals and has given 4 assists in just 10 appearances.
Alisson Becker’s header against West Brom
This goal was not an exceptional goal, but proved to be very crucial for Liverpool in their quest to qualify for the Champions League. Also you don’t see a goalkeeper scoring a match winning goal very often
