Manchester City forward Lauren Hemp could secure a hat-trick of Professional Footballers' Association women's young player of the year awards after she was shortlisted for the 2022 prize.

The 21-year-old could claim the accolade for the fourth time in total, having also won it while at Bristol City in 2018.

She is joined on the shortlist by Chelsea forward Lauren James, Arsenal's Norwegian star Frida Maanum, Tottenham striker Jessica Naz, Manchester United forward Ella Toone and Brighton defender Maya Le Tissier.

Hemp is considered one of the most gifted youngsters in the game and is a regular for City, scoring 16 goals in31 appearances this season as the Blues won the League Cup.

This season saw Hemp break her international duck for England, and in style, as she scored four times in a 20-0 win over Latvia in November.

Five months later she scored twice as England beat Northern Ireland.
