Harry Maguire and Erik ten Hag have been crowned the winners of the Premier League November accolades following an exceptional month for Manchester United.

In a stunning reversal of fortunes, Harry Maguire from Manchester United has been awarded the title of Premier League Player of the Month for November. Not long ago, Maguire’s position at United seemed uncertain, as he seemed to have fallen out of favor with manager Erik ten Hag. Nevertheless, due to injuries in the defensive line, Maguire was given a chance to showcase his abilities, and he undeniably seized the opportunity.

During the course of November, Maguire showcased his consistency by playing the entirety of United’s three Premier League matches, contributing to the team’s triumphs without letting in a single goal. His exceptional display undoubtedly had a major impact on him receiving the Player of the Month recognition. Maguire expressed his appreciation to his fellow players, the team’s staff, and the fans, recognizing their support and highlighting that it was not overlooked.

Maguire’s accomplishment is especially remarkable since he joins an exclusive group of only fifteen defenders in Premier League history who have won the Player of the Month accolade. By following in the footsteps of United icons Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, he further cements his position in the club’s prestigious history. Liverpool’s Joel Matip was the most recent defender to be awarded this prestigious recognition in February 2022.

Thanks to his exceptional recent displays for United, Maguire’s place in England’s starting lineup for Euro 2024 seems considerably more assured now. His undeniable contributions have undoubtedly captured the interest of national team coach Gareth Southgate, making him a crucial member of England’s defensive formation in the imminent competition.

Alongside Maguire’s personal triumphs, United’s coach Erik ten Hag has also been acknowledged for his accomplishments in November. Ten Hag has now been awarded Manager of the Month for the third time, after winning it in September 2022 and February 2023. His skill in tactics and leadership in securing victories against Fulham, Luton Town, and Everton have been recognized.

Moving forward, United’s goal is to capitalize on their recent success against Chelsea as they prepare to face Bournemouth on Saturday. With Maguire performing exceptionally well and Ten Hag’s managerial abilities, the team is optimistic about extending their winning streak and preserving their position at the pinnacle of the Premier League standings.
