Mikel Arteta Wins Premier League Manager Of The Month Title For February

Arteta

Arsenal kicked off the month with a crucial home match against title contenders Liverpool. Arteta’s squad secured a significant 3-1 victory.

A week later, Arsenal exorcised some demons from last season’s failed title charge away at West Ham United, toppling the Hammers 6-0 at London Stadium.

 

 

Saka got on the scoresheet once more with a brace, as did Trossard who grabbed the last of the Gunners’ four first-half goals.

William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and former West Ham captain Declan Rice were also on target.

Another huge win followed away to Burnley, with Arsenal this time emerging as 5-0 victors.

Saka once again secured a brace and Trossard was among the goals once more, while Martin Odegaard and Kai Havertz bookended the scoring up at Turf Moor.

Arsenal’s fine February concluded with a comprehensive 4-1 win back at the Emirates Stadium against Newcastle.

An own goal from Sven Botman broke the deadlock before Havertz and Saka put the Gunners three to the good,

while Jakub Kiwior got in on the act in the second half before former Arsenal youth product Joe Willock pulled one back late on.

Arteta, who beat off competition from Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag, has been named the Premier League’s Manager of the Month on seven occasions since taking charge of Arsenal in December 2019.

Only seven coaches have taken home the prize more than him, including Gunners legend Arsene Wenger.
