Other players on the list are Arsenal's Ben White, Rodrigo Muniz of Fulham, and Alexis Mac Alister of Liverpool, according to the Premier League's official website.

Meanwhile, Semenyo has become the second Bournemouth player to be nominated for the award this season after Dominic Solanke picked the gong in December.

The Ghanaian scored twice against Luton Town as the Cherries recovered from a 3-0 deficit to win 4-3 at Vitality Park. He also scored in the game against Burnley.

The former Bristol City forward has scored three goals and provided four assists this season, per Transfermarkt.

Bournemouth were unbeaten in March and remain on course to a late fight for a European place finish.

Semenyo's brace heroics against Luton

As reported by the BBC, the Ghanaian striker was also a hero for Bournemouth as they completed a remarkable comeback to beat Luton Town in March.

Having conceded three first-half goals, the Cherries were on the brink of defeat when Semenyo inspired them to victory with two late goals.

Tahith Chong, Chiedozie Ogbene, and Ross Barkley gave Luton a commanding lead before the break but Bournemouth started the comeback after Solanke pulled one back on 51 minutes.

Illia Zabarnyi reduced the deficit on the hour mark before Semenyo's heroics sealed a famous win for the hosts.

Cole Palmer fires Chelsea to victory

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that hat-trick hero, Cole Palmer scored twice deep into stoppage time on Thursday as Chelsea defeated Manchester United 4-3.

Erik ten Hag's men appeared set for a famous victory at Stamford Bridge after storming back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 in a game which saw 47 shots in total.

However, the Blues' Palmer had the last word in the game, levelling from the penalty spot in the 100th minute and then netting a winner moments later.
