Fans have picked Bernd Leno as Arsenal’s second best player of the season with the German as integral at the back as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was at the other end.

Bernd Leno hasn’t featured since he picked up a serious knee injury when Brighton’s Neal Maupay gave him a little shove in an action that has had multiple consequences.

The German, by that point, had done more than enough to help save Arsenal’s season from total and abject failure. The fact that he was also voted third in the Premier League this season in terms of save percentage, tells you that. His teammate and rival for the number one shirt, Emi Martinez, came out on top.

Bukayo Saka, who wasn’t selected by the Premier League as one of the candidates for Young Player of the Season, even though they picked two 24-year-olds in Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish, came in third place in Arsenal’s vote.

Aubameyang, who also wasn’t selected by the Premier League as one of the candidates for Player of the Season despite scoring 22 league goals, with three assists, will most likely be the winner when Arsenal make their announcement on Saturday.
