Jesse Lingard, Michael Keane, and Larnell Cole are nominated for Reserves Player of the Year award

Larnell Cole made his senior in September during a Carling Cup clash versus Leeds United

Manchester United Reserves coach Warren Joyce has nominated three players from his league-winning side for the Denzil Haroun Player of the Year award: Jesse Lingard, Michael Keane, and Larnell Cole. The award was won last season by Oliver Gill, David Gill's son. Here is what Joyce had to say about each of the nominees:

On midfielder Lingard:

"Jesse has weighed in with a lot of goals throughout the season. He's got pace as well as athleticism, and some strength and power in his game now. He also has the ability to go past people with clever play. He's a good character in the dressing room with a bubbly personality."

On defender Keane:

"Michael handles the ball really well and makes good decisions. He is generally brave and wants to defend – you've seen that in games with the amount of blocks or headers he puts in. He defends really well in one-versus-one situations and I don't think he's had many bad days this season, never mind bad games."

On midfielder Cole:

"Some of the skills you see Larnell do every day are brilliant; the way he shifts the ball around, his decision-making and selection of passing are good. He’s worked really hard every day, is always doing extra things and has had a good season."

Cole made his senior debut in September when he came as a substitute at Elland Road during a Carling Cup clash with Leeds United. Keane was an unused substitute for the senior side in January during a FA Cup encounter with Liverpool. The winner will be announced on May 14 during a dinner for the award.
