Arsenal star wins award after league-high six goal involvements in November and December

Martin Odegaard has been voted the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for November and December.

Arsenal captain Odegaard becomes only the second Norwegian to win the accolade, after Manchester City's Erling Haaland earned the August 2022 prize.

"It feels great," Odegaard told Arsenal's official website. "I've said a lot of times this team has a lot of young, hungry players and we play so well with each other.

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

Odegaard drove Arsenal's title challenge as Mikel Arteta's side opened up a seven-point lead at the top of the table.

The midfielder produced three goals and three assists across November and December, the most goal involvements by any Premier League player in this time.

Odegaard, 24, is the first Arsenal player to win the award since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in September 2019.

He topped an eight-man shortlist that included Casemiro, Haaland, Ben Mee, Joao Palhinha, Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Kieran Trippier.

Odegaard won after the public's votes on the EA SPORTS website were combined with those of a panel of football experts.
