Arsenal have continued to land more awards with manager Arsene Wenger and Thierry Henry securing respective end of season gongs.
Frenchman Wenger has been named the Barclaycard Manager of the Year, while Henry has won the Golden Boot and Player of the Season.
Arsenal have been magnificent in the top-flight this term, going the entire campaign unbeaten, while Henry has netted 30 goals.
"Arsene Wenger is a very worthy recipient of this accolade and has sent his team into the history books," said awards panel spokesman Nic Gault.
"Arsenal have played exciting attacking football throughout the season and finishing it unbeaten is a feat that may not be repeated for another 100 years."
Henry has played a significant part in The Gunners' success this campaign and is the first player to net 30 goals since Kevin Phillips back in the 1999/2000 season.
"Thierry Henry has played some of the most breathtaking football in the Barclaycard Premiership this season," added Gault.
"Not only was he the league's leading goal scorer, he also repeatedly created opportunities for his team-mates."
