Something tells us Ryan Sessegnon is going to need a bigger mantelpiece after the Fulham youngster swept the board at Sunday night's EFL Awards, picking up no less than five awards.

The Fulham star has been nominated for the award along with Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson.

Sterling has also played a major part in Man City's brilliant season with the England worldwide scoring 16 goals in the Premier League.

He's enjoyed a superb campaign for the Cottagers, scoring 14 goals in 38 appearances to help the West London club into the automatic promotion places.

Wolves fans (and many neutrals) will probably feel that Ruben Neves has been robbed in the Championship Player of the Year stakes, but that still shouldn't detract from Sessegnon's truly incredible ascension.

The Football League congratulated Sessegnon on his remarkable haul using this seizure-inducing message... There has even been talk of him being included in the England squad for the World Cup, despite him never having played in the Premier League.

Man City winger Sane is also on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Among the other contenders, Manchester United forward Rashford has made the list after a progressive season at Old Trafford, which has seen him appear in 29 Premier League games, scoring six goals and providing five assists.

City's goalkeeper Ederson also made the list after an impressive debut campaign that will end with a League Cup and nearly certainly a Premier League trophy too.
