Moussa Djenepo makes shortlist for Premier League goal of the season award

Moussa Djenepo, meanwhile has been shortlisted for the best goal award following his brilliant match-winning solo effort for Southampton against Sheffield United in September 2019.

The Malian winger is up against Kevin De Bruyne, Leicester’s Harvey Barnes, Newcastle’s Matty Longstaff, Spurs’ Son Hueng-Min, Brighton’s Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Burnley’s Matej Vydra and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes.

Djenepo scored two goals in the just ended season but his brilliant solo right-footed strike against Sheffield United is the one that is nominated for the Goal of the Season.

Dejenepo, 22, joined the Saints last summer from Belgian First Division A side Standard Liege for a fee around £14 million.

He only featured 20 times across all competition in his debut campaign owing to injury problems.

While Djenepo has 15 caps for Mali, Mane has scored 19 times in 69 appearances for Senegal and was part of the team that finished as runners-up at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
