It’s no surprise to see Man City players on the list of nominees, with Cancelo and Sterling being key members of a team that won each of its six matches in December. Sterling was the top scorer in the Premier League in December and scored five goals in those six matches – one of which was his 100th in the league.

What will be a little more surprising is to see two Arsenal players on the list. The Gunners have really turned a corner recently under Mikel Arteta, and the form of Odegaard and Martinelli has been the key to this. Together, the pair contributed with four goals and five assists in December.

Son Heung-min has also regained some form in recent months, largely due to the brilliant work done by Antonio Conte at Tottenham. Son scored in four of Tottenham’s five games in December.

England’s duo Mount and Maddison also performed very well in December, which makes it quite certain that both will be part of Gareth Southgate’s next Three Lions team. Maddison’s latest rise has been particularly impressive, with the midfielder going from miserably underperforming to scoring three goals and getting an assist only in December.
