I don’t suppose any of us loved the Premier League season 2020/21, but now it’s gone, along with its empty stadiums, daft Euro Super League, terrible VAR decisions, crappy pre-Christmas Arsenal run and much more.
So now we can reflect on how our players did during the campaign and vote for our favourites in a series of polls here on Arsenal Arsenal.
Whether you’re a regular or just dropping in today you are welcome to vote for our Defensive, Midfield and Attacking Players of the Year as well as our Overall Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year and Most Improved Player.
Today we start with the Defensive Player of the Year (including goalies, although in practice that just means Leno, given that Runarsson and Ryan did not play enough games to be considered).
Tomorrow we’ll move on to Midfield, then the Attackers on Thursday.
On Friday we’ll vote for Overall Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year and Most Improved Player.
The results will be published on Saturday.
Feel free to debate the options in comments.
