Tahith Chong has won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for December 2019.

The Dutch winger enjoyed a memorable end to last year, starring for Manchester United's youth team and earning an appearance for the senior side.

The 20-year-old scored one and set up two goals as the Red Devils won both Division 2 matches, beating West Bromwich Albion 3-1 and Reading 4-1 to stay second in the table.

In between he helped Man Utd qualify for the UEFA Europa League knockout stages as group leaders, coming on as a substitute in a 4-0 victory over AZ Alkmaar.

United's 2018/19 Under-23 Player of the Year also netted two goals in an EFL Trophy match against Tranmere Rovers.

Chong, who was born in Curacao but represents the Netherlands at Under-21 level, was named PL2 Player of the Month by the Premier League's Football Development Panel.

He beat fellow nominees Peter Gwargis (Brighton), Isaiah Jones (Middlesbrough), Admiral Muskwe (Leicester), Louie Sibley (Derby) and Morgan Whittaker (Derby).
