Arsenal duo nominated for PL Young Player of the Year

Posted on May 18, 2022 by Harry Kettle

As per Arsenal.com, Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale have both been nominated for the Premier League Young Player of the Year award.

While it seems the Gunners won’t achieve their ultimate goal of winning silverware or finishing in the top four, we’ve certainly seen a few breakout stars come to the forefront throughout the course of the campaign. Arsenal, as a club, are starting to be recognised as the kind of team that wants to bring through fresh youngsters – and that’s exactly the kind of approach that has helped Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale get the nod.

“Our two England internationals have had stellar campaigns at opposite ends of the pitch, both playing crucial roles throughout the season.

Almost instantly since his summer arrival from Sheffield United, 23-year-old Aaron emerged as a key figure both off and off the pitch, demonstrating true leadership qualities to go with his 12 clean sheets in 36 Premier League matches.

In a season of brilliant performances, one of our goalkeeper’s standout moments came away to Leicester City in October, where he produced a fantastic save to keep out James Maddison’s free-kick.

Bukayo has been an ever-present in our Premier League campaign, featuring in all 36 matches so far, scoring 11 goals and claiming six assists.

The 20-year-old forward’s highlights of the season include his Boxing Day brace against Norwich City, a brilliant first-time finish away to Watford, and crucial penalties against Chelsea and Manchester United.
