In the best player category, Neville picked Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard but Carragher preferred Manchester City star Phil Foden.

Both ex-footballers, however, agreed on who should be crowned best young player after going for Chelsea’s Cole Palmer.

Meanwhile, Kudus has described the Premier League as the best league in the world and says he has announced himself since joining West Ham United.

The Ghana international has enjoyed a fruitful debut campaign in the English topflight since swapping Ajax Amsterdam for the Hammers last year.

Kudus has also affirmed his status as one of the best dribblers in the game, becoming the first player to complete 12 dribbles in a single game in the Premier League this season.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate holds the record as the only footballer to have completed over 100 take-ons in Europe’s top five leagues in the ongoing 2023/24 campaign.

He has so far been involved in 19 goals in all competitions for the Hammers, having contributed 13 goals and seven assists.

Kudus was a surprise omission from the Premier League’s Young Player of the Season nominees but his amazing solo goal against Freiburg in the UEFA Europa League emerged as winner of West Ham’s Goal of the Season award.
