Saka scored 7 goals and had 10 assists last season in what was his most productive season in his career, he was also Arsenal’s player of the Season after 51% of fans voted for him to win the award.  His performances earned him a regular place on the England national team.

While Martinelli spent most of the season recovering from his lengthy injury. William Saliba is yet to make his senior Arsenal debut but has been impressive while on loan in France.

In 2006 Cesc Fabregas won the golden boy award while at Arsenal.
