Mikel Arteta, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Jesus and William Saliba are all up for Premier League gongs following Arsenal’s fine start to the season.
After winning all five of their league fixtures in August to go top of the table, Arteta is in pole position to win the Manager of the Month award. He’s won it twice before in September 2021 and earlier this year in March.
Pep Guardiola, Antonio C*nte, Graham Potter and Marco Silva make up the numbers.
Captain Martin Odegaard and new striker Gabriel Jesus are up for the Player of the Month award for their contributions on the pitch. The Norwegian registered three goals in August while the Brazilian netted three times and made three assists.
Given Erling Haaland announced his arrival in England with nine goals and an assist, they probably don’t have much of a chance of winning. Nor do the other nominees, Pascal Gross, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Nick Pope, Rodrigo and Wilfried Zaha.
Jesus is also up for Goal of the Month for his dinked effort against Leicester. He’s joined on the shortlist by William Saliba who also opened his Arsenal account in spectacular fashion with a sublime curler against Bournemouth.
