The Gunners saw off rivals Chelsea and Wolves before the six-week pause of Premier League action and then dispatched West Ham United on Boxing Day and in-form Brighton & Hove Albion on New Year’s Eve.
Four matches. Four wins. Ten goals. ✅@PremierLeague Manager of the Month 🥇

Arteta’s success comes after Martin Odegaard was named Player of the Month for his outstanding performances in midfield, which have helped maintain the club’s position at the top of the Premier league table.
Eddie Howe, Jurgen Klopp, and Thomas Frank were also nominated for the award, but Arteta has claimed the award for the fourth time since succeeding Unai Emery as manager late in 2019.
Arsenal are currently five points clear at the top of the Premier League table after winning 14 of the 17 games they have played so far. That is comfortably ahead of pre-season expectations, with the pressure now on to deny Manchester City a third successive title.
Next up for Arteta’s side is a crunch north London derby with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
