Mikel Arteta wins Premier League Manager of the Month for March
Mikel Arteta has won the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award for a near-perfect March for his Arsenal side.
The Gunners have shown excellent consistency over the past few months to put themselves into pole position for a place in the top four and Champions League qualification.
Arsenal started March by beating Watford 3-2 before a more straightforward 2-0 success over Leicester. They were beaten at home by Liverpool, but bounced back by winning at Aston Villa 1-0.
That was the first time in seven years Arsenal have won five consecutive Premier League away matches. They could make it six with a win at Crystal Palace on Monday night.
It’s the second time this season Arteta has won the award, with his first coming back in September.
