Three senior Tottenham Hotspur footballers and one Tottenham Hotspur Women player have all received nominations for the 2021 London Football Awards.

Both Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min are nominated for Premier League Player of the Season, along with Chelsea’s Mason Mount, and West Ham’s Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice.

Tottenham Hotspur Women forward Angela Addison was nominated for Women’s Young Player of the Year, along with Arsenal’s Malin Gut and Chelsea’s Niamh Charles.

Finally, Erik Lamela’s spectacular RABONA NUTMEG GOAL against Arsenal has already made the nomination list for Goal of the Season. Other candidates include West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini & Sebastian Haller, Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze, and Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud.

Tottenham have some history in these awards; Son Heung-Min took home the Goal of the Season award last year for his Puskas-winning goal against Burnley. Spurs also had a strong showing in 2018-19, with Sonny winning Premier League Player of the Year, and Mauricio Pochettino winning Manager of the Year.

The awards, which are granted to footballers who ply their trade within England’s capital, are selected by a panel of current and former players as well as football journalists. The awards are in part a fundraiser benefiting the Willow Foundation, a UK charity that benefits “psychological and emotional support for seriously ill 16- to 40-year-olds through the provision of special day experiences.”

The awards will be granted via a virtual ceremony on April 27.
