Mikel Arteta has picked up his third Manager of the Month award after Arsenal won their first five league games of the season.

Thee 40-year-old oversaw a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace, a 4-2 win over Leicester at the Emirates, a 3-0 win at Bournemouth and two 2-1 home wins against Fulham and Aston Villa.

Arteta previously won the award in September 2021 and March 2022.

Erling Haaland, unsurprisingly, won Player of the Month.
