Manchester City continue their dominance of the Premier League under Pep Guardiola but it’s a different picture at the bottom with very little separating the bottom six sides. It’s been a tough month in the Premier League but who rose to the challenge and made it in to our team of the month?
Goalkeeper – Jonas Lössl (Huddersfield Town)
It’s tight down at the bottom but a solid defence has given Huddersfield the foundations to move themselves off the bottom of the table and up to 15th. Huddersfield had the equal best defence in November, conceding just one goal in the Premier League and it’s no surprise after some strong performances from their ‘keeper.
Right Back – Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
The highlight of Alexander-Arnold’s month was undoubtedly the brilliant free-kick he scored against Watford. However, he also contributed well to a fine Liverpool defence by keeping clean sheets against Fulham and Watford. An assist against the former was deserved after a great display.

Centre Back – Federico Fernández (Newcastle United)
Newcastle were one of only three teams to win all three of their matches in November alongside Manchester City and Spurs. A clean sheet against Watford and an assist against Burnley contributed to an excellent month for the Magpies as they aim to steer clear of the drop.
Centre Back – Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool)
Another outstanding month for van Dijk as he makes the supposed ‘most challenging league in the world’ look like a walk in the park. He dominated the games against Fulham & Watford earning two clean sheets and he didn’t put a foot wrong in the match at Arsenal as he was let down by Lovren.
Left back – Ben Chilwell (Leicester City)
Things have been going great for Ben Chilwell recently. Consecutive starts for England capped a brilliant month for the young left back as he helped Leicester to the equal best defensive record. He kept two clean sheets and managed an assist against Cardiff.
Right Wing – Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
It’s been a sensational month for Raheem Sterling. With three goals and four assists he has helped Man City to thumping victories over Southampton and West Ham. The Englishman was also able to claim bragging rights over rivals Man United.
Centre Midfield – Aaron Mooy (Huddersfield Town)
Huddersfield’s Australian playmaker has been at the heart of everything good about Huddersfield in recent weeks. Mooy has controlled games excellently, picked out wonderful passes and even chipped in with a couple of goals to earn three points against Wolves.
Centre Midfield – David Silva (Manchester City)
David Silva continues to put in exceptional performances week-after-week and year-after-year. The Spaniard is fundamental to Manchester City and the way they play. Having scored in all three of their games in November David Silva typifies Man City’s dominance of the Premier League this season.
Left Wing – Leroy Sané (Manchester City)
Having been frozen out by Pep earlier in the season, Sané is now well on his way to recapturing the form that saw him claim the Premier League Young Player of the Season last year. Sané managed a very impressive three goals and three assists in the two games he started.
Striker – Sergio Agüero (Manchester City)
Consistently good form from strikers has been hard to find in the Premier League this season but Agüero is the closest you’ll find. The Argentine is instrumental in Man City’s incredible attack, he contributed two goals and two assists in November but so much more off the ball.
Striker – Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)
Two goals and an assist are pretty measly by Harry Kane’s exceedingly high standards, however, his performances over November were still brilliant. He led Spurs to a very impressive 3-1 win over Chelsea and had countless chances over the course of the month to improve on his goal tally.
