Ødegaard Wins EPL Player of the Month Award For December

Arsenal’s Captain Martin Ødegaard has won the English Premier League player for the month of December award.

The 23-year-old Norwegian’s six goal involvements in December were more than any other Premier League player in that four-game period, which saw him fight off competition from Manchester United pair Marcus Rashford and Casemiro, international teammate Erling Haaland, Ben Mee of Brentford, Newcastle United right-back Kieran Tripper and Joao Palhinha of Fulham.

Martin came out on top after the public’s votes were combined with those of a panel of football experts.

“It feels great. I’ve said a lot of times this team has a lot of young, hungry players and we play so well with each other, so it’s just a pleasure to be here and to be part of what we’re doing now,” he said on his award while speaking with Arsenal.com

“It’s a pleasure to play with them and show my qualities so I’m very happy to get this award.”

He is the 21st different player to scoop the monthly prize during their time at the club, and the first since September 2019 when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was adjudged to be the top performer.

Martin is also only the second Norwegian to be named Premier League Player of the Month, after Haaland who picked up the trophy in August.
