Mikel Arteta earns Premier League Manager of the Month award for September

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has picked up the Premier League Manager of the Month award for September after guiding his side to 10 points from a possible 12 available.

The Spaniard can be proud of his side’s achievements considering the suffering they endured during the month of August, when they suffered three straight defeats to Brentford, Chelsea and Man City in the division.

After the international break we really steadied the ship however, with the manager leading us to consecutive 1-0 victories before we really brought our game to beat Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham side 3-1 to leapfrog them in the PL table.

Coincidentally it was Nuno who lifted the same award in August after he guided his side to three straight wins to put them top of the table going into the previous international break.

The manager insists that the award isn’t only for him however, as it a sign that all of the people came together to get the right results.

You would expect us to enjoy another good month in October with two home matches against both Leeds and Crystal Palace, before we travel to take on Leicester who are struggling at present to find the level of form they had last season.

  1. And rightly so. W0-L3 to W3 D1 is a commendable achievement. Home games v Palace and Villa will define the first quarter of our season.

      1. gundown, Something- call it an inspired hunch, if you wish – tells me that MA winning this award has angered you.

        I t pleases me and also pleases me that it has so clearly angered both you and many others who share your hopes that MA is not here soon.

        I believe you and your ilk are doomed to a big disappointment and am pleased about that!

  2. In fairness, as would be said to any player upon being recognised (i.e. Tomi for our POTM award), well done Mikel Arteta for picking up MOTM.

    1. AJ Quote ” ANY player” ? I rather think NOT Auba, for one! DON’T YOU!!?? (I must assume you meant “any of OUR players” when I wrote the above).
      My personal MotM would have been ESR, with Tomi at least not higher than third or fourth behind RAMSDALE, SAKA, (AND ALSO POSSIBLY GABRIEL, AS TOMI HAD ONE POOR MATCH AT BRIGHTON)

  3. many people are saying Arteta dosent deserve it n stuff like that honestly

    Irrespective of whether he deserves it or not im happy for him
    U might hate him but he has been trough some unreal pressure and is thrown a mammoth task.

    I cant imagine the pressure he must have been through in November December phase amid so much negativity and a well know fact that we have a horrible squad he kept on going

    i also think many people forget he is a former Arsenal captain naturally when we were knocked out of Europa League it must have hurt him the most
    Then of course the first 3 games of this season with all

    During all of this he has faced people sending him death threats, a mob gathering around his car asking to quit to the #ArtetaOut

    BUT during all this times he never lost the dressing room took all the blames always assured us AND he actually turned it around EVERYTIME

    With the pressure he has been through i think its a small reward and much needed confidence booster happy for him


  4. Don’t get me wrong… I don’t like the football and I can’t work out why MA is still at the club but credit when credit is due. Although it was hard work watching Norwich, Burnley and Brighton the first half performance against the spuds was perfect. Potential banana skins he got us through so congratulations Mikel. Hopefully he may have turned that corner and the football and results might be more palatable.

  5. They robbed him at one point last season so it’s great to see him get it this time. Congratulations, well deserved but still not convinced.

  6. Congratulations boss!
    Hope you win awards for october and november as well, so it would mean we will play good football.

  7. Congrats Arteta. Hope the awards keep coming, meaning Arsenal climbing up the ladder and hopefully making it to the top 4.
