MR RELIABLE - Son is always a consistent performer for Spurs

Tottenham have gone unbeaten in the league since Antonio Conte took over, with three wins and two draws gained in December to see them in a strong position for European football next season.

Heung-Min Son had a goal involvement in every game, scoring four times and providing two assists.

STERLING EFFORT - Raheem is once again showing what he's made of

It looks likely that the winner of the Premier League Player of the Month will be a Manchester City player, with them winning every game in the month.

In fact, they have won every league game for the second month in a row.

Transfer rumours have been circling Raheem Sterling, with him not getting much game time, but it looks like this could be some more great man-management from Pep, as Sterling got five goals and an assist in the five games he played.

And that was without appearing in the 7-0 thrashing of Leeds!

RAPID RIGHT-BACK - Cancelo could become the best RB in FUT 22

Man City's winning streak stretches back to the beginning of November as they have now won 11 games on the bounce, including all seven in a hectic December.

Portuguese star Joao Cancelo scored one, provided one assist, and helped keep three clean sheets last month and could receive a brilliant new card next week.

MOUNTING THE ATTACK - Top performances are being rewarded with goals

Mason Mount has played every minute of Chelsea's seven league games in December, getting four goals and three assists in that time.

Individually it's the best contribution of a player in that time, but he could miss out on the award with the team not being at their best, with three wins, three draws and a loss seeing them slipping away from the title race.

YOUNG GUN - Odegaard is looking like a top signing for Arsenal

Arsenal are looking the best they have in years, led by top performances by their young stars.

Martin Odegaard may slip under the radar a bit, not as raved about as Saka or Smith Rowe, but he has been in top form in December, getting three goals and three assists in six games.

James Maddison

CREATIVE SPARK - Maddison's form could help push the Foxes up the table

James Maddison looks to have returned to form after a stellar December in which he scored three times for Leicester.

Maddison also provided an assist in the hammering of Newcastle where he operated from the right of midfield, but we expect a CAM card if he does pick up the award.

Gabriel Martinelli

FUTURE STAR - Gabriel Martinelli is showing his great potential

Arsenal are back! It may be a bit early to make such claims, but Gabriel Martinelli has been a key part of their recent success.

The Gunners enjoyed a great month in December, with the young Brazilian scoring three time as they went on a four-game win streak.

November POTM

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold gained another 89 OVR card in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team!

The England international picked up the November Player of the Month award after scoring once and assisting four times.

Defensively TAA was solid too, helping the Reds keep two clean sheets in their three matches as they seek to regain the Premier League title.
