BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,24TH MARCH,2022-Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka is one of eight nominees for March’s Premier League Player of the Month.
The 20-year-old led from the front for the Gunners in March, claiming two goals and an assist from four Premier League matches as Mikel Arteta‘s side broke into the top four of the table.
Saka scored a peach of a left-footed effort against Watford after combining expertly with Martin Odegaard for his side’s opener, and he scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Aston Villa last Saturday.
The England international is the sole Arsenal nominee in March’s batch, with Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski also up for the award.
Chelsea also have two nominees in the forms of Trevoh Chalobah and Kai Havertz, while Liverpool‘s Andy Robertson, Brentford‘s Ivan Toney and Aston Villa’s Matty Cash complete the list.
Michail Antonio, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Raheem Sterling, David de Gea and Joel Matip have already received the individual honour this season
