Shortlist confirmed: Who will be Arsenal’s Player of the Season 2019-20?

Arsenal have confirmed their three-man shortlist for their Player of the Season award, with Bukayo Saka going up against key stars Bernd Leno and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the award.

The 18 year-old would likely have laughed at the thought of being shortlisted for the award 12 months ago, having only picked up seven minutes of Premier League action before the start of this season, but has been an integral cog in the team throughout the term.

Saka has picked up 38 appearances in all competitions in his breakthrough season, and may get a number of votes to pick up this prestigious team award, as he looks to take Jack Wilshere’s title of being the youngest ever winner of the award.

Bernd Leno was definitely amongst our better players of the campaign, but following his loss to injury, some fans are claiming that the German should stay on the bench when he returns, which tells me that many of our club’s followers may have forgotten about the great work he has done during a tough campaign, and also tells me he will likely be overlooked for the award.

Nobody can ignore the season that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has had though, with his future also being talked about constantly throughout.

PEA has refused to allow his future to distract him from finding the back of the net, scoring 22 Premier League goals in consecutive seasons, and while I would be more than happy to see Saka walk away with the award, it would be harsh on the Gabon international.

You can cast your votes for the award on the official Arsenal website here.

Has Saka done enough to land the award? Could Aubz contract saga with the club affect the fans voting?

    Leno is far from picking this award. I wish we could be having Sczesney or Fabianski in our goal post

    1. Manovic says:

      Unless you are playing a sacarsm card.Leno is a worthy candidate for the award and worst case scenario a runner-up.He always have a high rating at end of our matches.Give him some credit bro.

      I think Leno is good but not as great as some make out
      Makes allot of mistakes
      saying that under Emery he did have like 20 shots a game to deal with
      I still can’t forgive him for Olympiakos game lol
      If he just kicked the ball down the pitch we be in Europe still but nah , kicks it our for a corner

  2. Siamois says:

    There is no doubt who is going to win PEA for sure !

  3. Declan says:

    I’d vote for Martinez if he was on the list, far better in every respect than Leno in my opinion and saved us from finishing 12th.

    Sentiment aside, in terms of contribution it really is between Aubameyang and Leno. We would have been much closer to relegation without either of them.

    For me, Leno just about shades it. Interestingly I think Martinez has been just a bit better than Leno but not played enough to be considered player of the season.

      To me all the three players were played very well, If I picked one player among them is Aubameyang,leno,Saka.

    2. Dan says:

      Not just aimed at you mate but I hate this if not for Auba we get relegated / be in relegation fight
      How do we know that ?
      How do we know what someone else would have done with those exact same chances

      1. Highbury Hero says:

        But they had those chances? What have they done? Pierre has been shifted to the wing what has Alexander and Eddie done? Isn’t it Pierre who still score goals?

        Without Pierre goals we surely would’ve been in relegation fight.

  5. Highbury Hero says:

    There were no need for shortlist this season the award should’ve been given straight to Pierre.

  6. Pepe says:

    The only one in this team who has shown that he is irreplaceable is auba. The closest to his replacement is marti
