May 28, (THEWILL) –┬áIlkay Gundogan and Jordan Pickford have won the English Premier League’s Game Changer and Save of the Season honours for the 2021/2022 campaign.

Gundogan was crowned the Game Changer of the Season for his spectacular cameo on the last day of the season, which sealed the title for Manchester City in spectacular fashion. The Germany midfielder came off the bench with City behind 2-0 to Aston Villa, and scored twice in five minutes and 37 seconds.

Rodri also scored what was the equaliser, sandwiched between Gundogan’s strikes, but the latter’s heroics sealed City’s fourth title in five years, denying Liverpool for the fourth time.

Meanwhile, England goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, has been recognised for his incredible save against Chelsea on May 1 for Everton. Frank Lampard’s side were five points short of safety, but they came out on top courtesy to Richarlison’s winner and Pickford’s outstanding goalkeeping.

Pickford sprinted out of his line with Everton leading 1-0 and made a fantastic save to deny Cesar Azpilicueta, who appeared set to drill into an open goal after Mason Mount’s shot had hit the crossbar. The victory ensured Everton maintained their reputation as an ever-present side in the EPL.
