Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard has been named the Premier League Player of the Month across November and December.
There were four rounds of matches over two months, with the World Cup break separating them, so the decision was made to combine the monthly prizes this time.
In the eight-player shortlist, which also included Casemiro, Erling Haaland, Ben Mee, Joao Palhinha, Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Kieran Trippier, Odegaard came out on top after the results of the fan vote were combined with the panel’s decision.
November and December saw Odegaard produce perhaps his best form in the Premier League, scoring three goals and assisting three – more goals than any other player in the same period.
He netted twice against Wolves in a 2-0 win before the World Cup before assisting twice against West Ham on his return to the Premier League, and Odegaard capped 2022 with one of those in a dramatic 4-2 win over Brighton on New Year’s Day. Eve.
Odegaard became the first Arsenal player to win the award since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in September 2019.
There are now four different winners in each month of the 2022/23 Premier League, with Norway’s Haaland starting in August.
Manchester United’s Rashford picked up the award in September before Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron took it home in October.
