The Premier league manager and player of the month is an award handed out to the best adjudged manager and player each month of a season. It has been in place since 1993 with several managers and players getting recognized for their exceptional performances.
Since the beginning of the current Premier league campaign in August 2022, we have had only three different tacticians win the monthly managerial accolades, while four separate players have picked up the player’s awards.
Below are three clubs who have produced both manager and player of the month winners.
League leaders Arsenal have been in fine form this season as they look to conquer England for the first time since 2004. For all his good work for the Gunners, Mikel Arteta has won multiple Premier league manager of the month (August, November/December, January) awards this term, while his captain Martin Odegaard equally picked up the player of the month award for November/December 2022.
2. Manchester United
Barring their recent 7-0 humbling defeat to Liverpool, Manchester United have been very impressive this season. Mathematically, the Red Devils are still in contention for three more trophies (FA Cup, Europa League and Premier league) this campaign, although winning the Premier league might be much of a herculean task for them as they have to depend on both Arsenal and Manchester City dropping points before they can gain momentum.
However, for all their hard work, Erik Ten Hag and Marcus Rashford have been picking up monthly Premier league awards. The Duo picked recently up the awards for their outstanding performance last month. They had previously won it together in September 2022, and Marcus Rashford won player of the month in January 2023.
3. Newcastle United
The Magpies have been slowing down on their early season form lately and that’s why they have dropped out of the top four. However, In October 2022, Eddie Howe was named manager of the month, Miguel Almiron as player of that same month.
Manchester City have also managed to produce a Premier league player of the month award winner, Erling Haaland picked up the accolade in August 2022.
