A brace in Arsenal's 4-1 win over huge Crystal Palace side at the Emirates. Coupled with another set-up for Martinelli, took Saka to double figures for goals and assists in the top-flight this term.

That has resulted to Bukayo Saka been named Premier League Player of the Month after helping Arsenal maintain their lead at the top of the table in March. Gunners tweeted congratulations to Saka, who is playing a key role in their quest for the Premier League glory this season as per Daily Mail report.

They won all four of their league games in March, with the in-form 21-year-old scoring three goals and claiming two assists for Mikel Arteta's side. It's the first time Bukayo Saka has won the award.
