Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka pips Chelsea’s Mason Mount to Young Player of the Year award at LFA

Bukayo Saka continues to impress

Arsenal’s 2020/21 season on the hole has been pretty dire so far, with a Europa League win the only real avenue left to salvage their campaign.

One of the few bright sparks to come from Arsenal’s season, though, has been the performances of some of their academy stars.

Both Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have shone for Mikel Arteta’s side during the current campaign.

It is Saka, however, who has become almost un-droppable for the Gunners this term.

Saka has scored five and assisted three in the league for the north Londoners as well as bagging two goals and four assists in seven Europa League outings, with the 19-year-old’s second-leg display vs Slavia Prague a particular highlight:

Saka’s superb form has also earned him his England debut, which he made in October of 2020 and has since seen him handed a further three outings for the Three Lions.

Now, the youngster’s impressive form has, on Tuesday, been recognised in the form of an award.

The 2021 London Football Awards took place on Tuesday evening, with Saka nominated for the Young Player of the Year alongside some top talents such as Chelsea’s Mason Mount, West Ham’s Declan Rice and teammate Smith Rowe.

As revealed a short time ago, though, it would be Saka who took home the award:
