Meanwhile, Gabon international Aubameyang was key to the Gunners’ progress last season, given his impressive performances in front of goal, scoring 29 goals, and providing 3 assists to help his team win the FA Cup.

Other players that made the team are Nick Pope, Andrew Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, David Silva, Jamie Vardy, Caglar Soyuncu, and Jordan Henderson

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne was the last inclusion, as he was also named the PFA Player of the year while Alexander-Arnold won the gong for the best young player.



There are very few things in life that make me happy, but talking and writing Sports has to be at the top. I honed my broadcasting skills at the University of Lagos Radio Station and have free-lanced for platforms like Top Radio and Superscreen TV amongst others. Deji loves running commentaries on Football matches and Athletics, and is now a Junior Sports Writer at Making of Champions. He hopes to become a Sports Agent in the future.
