Manuel Lanzini has been crowned as KUMB.com's Player of the Year.

The Argentinian attacking midfielder beat Hammer of the Year Michail Antonio to the award by just six per cent of all votes, taking 42 per cent of readers' nominations to Antonio's 36 per cent.




Meanwhile Edimilson Fernandes was named as KUMB's Young Player of the Year, beating Josh Cullen and Toni Martinez into second and third place respectively. The Swiss midfielder was also named as KUMB readers' Best Signing, ahead of Athur Masuaku (runner up) and Adre Ayew (third place).

In our other categories, Andy Carroll's overhead kick against Crystal Palace was named as KUMB's Goal of the Season and the 1-0 win over Tottenham as your Most Memorable Match. Pedro Obiang, who came third in the Player of the Year category wins the Most Imporved Player award.




Our readers' rogues gallery this year consists of Gokhan Tore (Worst Player), Simone Zaza (Worst Signing), Dimitri Payet (Hackett of the Year) and Leaving Upton Park (Greatest Disappointment).
