Odegaard named Premier League Player of the Month

Martin Odegaard with his Premier League Player of the Month award

Martin Odegaard has been awarded the Premier League Player of the Month award for November and December.

Our captain was in sublime form either side of the World Cup break, as he bagged a brace against Wolves before the tournament, and following the return to domestic action he assisted Eddie Nketiah’s goal against West Ham United before laying on two more against Brighton and getting on the scoresheet himself.

His six goal involvements in the period were more than any other Premier League player in that four-game period, and 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.

On his award, which he was presented with in front of one of the new Emirates Stadium artworks, he said: "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.

"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.
