The award is in recognition of the players productive and memorable season with his North London club, during which he made his debut for England National team. Saka had to beat hisbArsenal team mate, Emile Smith Rowe, Chelsea duo Mason Mount and Recce James, and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Though the young player has won some other awards like EPL player of the month, man of the match award etc. But the London player of the year is his first major individual award.
