Arsenal’s incredible form during the 2022/23 season was rewarded with a series of awards at the London Football Awards.
Unsurprisingly, manager Mikel Arteta was named Manager of the Year, while Martin Odegaard was named Premier League Player of the Year.
Winger Bukayo Saka, who was runner-up to Odegaard at the senior level, took home the Premier League Young Player of the Year award ahead of teammates William Saliba and Gabriel Martinelli, and Aaron Ramsdale was named Goalkeeper of the Year.
The annual ceremony was held at the Camden Roundhouse on Monday night and celebrated the capital’s best footballing talent.
England’s Lionesses were recognized with The Power of Football Award after their successful Euro 2022 campaign, and there was also a notable contribution to London football for former West Ham captain and now sporting director Mark Noble.
