I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it
Woah, woah, here we go
Saka and Emile Smith Rowe
…have been nominated by their peers for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Between them, the Arsenal duo made 80 appearances, scored 23 goals and made nine assists.
Bukayo and Emile are nominated alongside Conor Gallagher, Phil Foden, Reece James and Jacob Murphy.
Having won the award last year and having been crowned the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year for 21/22, Foden is arguably the favourite although you could easily make a strong argument in favour of Saka who has grown in stature at both domestic and international levels.
We’ll find out who gets the gong soon enough, the winner will be announced on Thursday, 9 June. Here’s hoping one of our boys follows in the footsteps of Messrs Adams, Merson, Anelka, Fabregas and Wilshere.
