2022/23 PFA Awards

Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka celebrate a goal

A host of Gunners will be heading to the Lowry Theatre in Manchester for the annual PFA awards, which recognise the outstanding performers from every division and are voted for by the players themselves.   

Both Bukyao Saka and Martin Odegaard are up for the men's Player of the Year award, having both scored 15 goals last term to help our title challenge. They are two of a six-man shortlist that also includes Manchester City trio Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones, as well as Harry Kane.

Bukayo is also in contention for the Young Player of the Year prize, alongside Gabriel Martinelli. The other contenders are Haaland again, plus Jacob Ramsey of Aston Villa, Brighton striker Evan Ferguson and his former Seagull Moises Caicedo, who recently joined Chelsea.

Frida Maanum has been nominated for the women's Player of the Year for the first time, after recording nine goals and four assists in only her second Women’s Super League campaign, with her rivals being Chelsea duo Sam Kerr and Guro Reiten, Rachel Daly of Aston Villa, Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw of Manchester City and Ona Batlle of neighbours United.

A host of our players could be included in their respective Teams of the Year, and our cameras will be at the event to bring you behind-the-scenes of one of the highlights of the calendar.
