The pride of London ?

Rice and Mount were also up for the Young Player of the Year gong, but 19-year-old Arsenal talisman Bukayo Saka took home the prize after his incredible 20/21 where he has become a key player for The Gunners.
West Ham took home two awards, with David Moyes winning Manager of the Year and Lukasz Fabianski being named Goalkeeper of the Year, while Erik Lamela’s NLD rabona golazo rightly won the Goal of the Season gong.
Brentford striker Ivan Toney was named EFL Player of the Season after an unreal debut season in west London, with the 25-year-old bagging for the Bees 29 times since arriving from Peterborough United.
