Yesterday saw Leicester City announce the shortlists for the Award nominations for the season of 2017/18.
Although it has been a mixed year with results under Claude Puel and fans have their own thoughts about the style of play he wants to forge forward with, a slip-up or two less would still see us realistically in the battle for European football next season and that shouldn’t be forgotten.
Some players have naturally stood out more than others though.
The three categories open for a vote, which will be presented at the End of Season Dinner, are:
Player of the Season
Young Player of the Season
Goal of the Season
The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday, May 1 at the King Power Stadium and will take place in aid of the Foxes Foundation.
2017/18 Goal Of The Season Nominations:
Jamie Vardy vs. Everton (H)
Jamie Vardy vs. Tottenham Hotspur (H)
Riyad Mahrez vs. Tottenham Hotspur (H)
Riyad Mahrez vs. Newcastle United (A)
Shinji Okazaki vs. Southampton (A)
Jamie Vardy vs. Manchester United (H)
Kelechi Iheanacho vs. Peterborough United (A)
Riyad Mahrez vs. AFC Bournemouth (H)
Jamie Vardy vs. West Bromwich Albion (A)
Riyad Mahrez vs. West Bromwich Albion (A)

Player of the Season:
Young Player of the Season:
Fans will have their own opinions on each category and those included, but one thing is guaranteed when you look at the video for Goal of the Season – Jamie Vardy takes the headlines for his goalscoring ability this campaign, but Mahrez has been absolutely key to us with his eight assists for the campaign so far.
Leicester fans were quick to note that on social media.
They're all involving Mahrez. You can see why #LCFC ain't letting this magician leave.

Vardy v West Brom was outstanding.
Anyone watching this video still saying Jamie Vardy isn’t a natural finisher needs their head examining

Vardy vs West Brom hands down

It just has to be Vardy’s volley against West Brom, which could also win the premier league goal of the season, IMO
