Arsenal supporters are upset that Takehiro Tomiyasu was not nominated for the Player of the Month award by the Premier League. After a disastrous start to the 2021-22 Premier League season, the Gunners are having a good run. Arsenal had lost their first three games in a row, conceding nine goals and scoring none. As a result, they were relegated to the Premier League’s bottom division. Arsenal, on the other hand, looked much better on the pitch after all of their players returned from injuries and illnesses. Mikel Arteta’s side have won three games in a row in the Premier League and are currently in tenth place. While the entire team has performed admirably to earn those victories, a few footballers have stood out. Takehiro Tomiyasu is one of these players. On deadline day this summer, the Japanese footballer joined the Gunners from Bologna for a reported fee of £16 million. He’s been an important part of a defense that has kept two clean sheets in the last three games. Tomiyasu’s performances have been lauded by Gunners supporters. They believe that when nominating footballers for the Player of the Month award, the Premier League overlooked his name. Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah, Allan Saint-Maximin, Joao Cancelo, Antonio Rudiger, and Ismaila Sarr are among the Premier League’s nominees for September.
What has been the performance of the nominees in the Premier League?
Since joining Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has made an immediate impact. For the Red Devils, he has three goals in three games. Mohamed Salah has also been on fire for Liverpool this season, scoring in every Premier League match. With his driving runs and powerful dribbling, Allan Saint-Maximin has been the difference maker for Newcastle this season. Meanwhile, Joao Cancelo has continued to impress for Manchester City as a makeshift left-back. While maintaining his discipline at the back, the Portuguese full-back has been one of City’s best creators in front of goal.
Antonio Rudiger is currently in a purple patch of form. In the Premier League, he has kept four clean sheets in six games and appears to be impossible to dribble past. Finally, Ismaila Sarr has reaffirmed why he was so highly regarded two years ago. The Premier League has struggled to contain his deft runs аnd uncаnny аbility to find the bаck of the net.
Are Arsenal fans justified in their dissatisfaction with the Premier League? It’s understandable that Arsenal supporters believe their team put in some strong performances in September. However, it’s just as unlikely, if not more so, to believe that Arsenal’s players have been the best in the league, especially when compared to the nominees.
Tomiyаsu hаs hаd аn outstаnding stаrt to his Premier Leаgue cаreer. He should continue to improve his gаme in order to help Arsenаl win even more аwаrds in the future. On our SK Experts tаb, you cаn reаd Fаbrizio Romаno аnd Pаul Merson’s lаtest column.
