Dean Smith wins Premier League manager of the month award

Dean Smith beats Solskjaer, Ancelotti and Dyche to win the Manager of the Month award for December.

Dean Smith guided Villa to an unbeaten December.

Aston Villa boss, Dean Smith, has won the Premier League Manager of the Month award for December 2020.

This is the English manager’s first Premier League award since he guided Villa back into the Premier League in 2019.

El Ghazi scored the first of his five goals in December against Wolves

Aston Villa started the month with a win over Midlands rivals, Wolves, thanks to a stoppage time penalty from Anwar El Ghazi.

Villa’s next match was a somewhat boring affair – a 0-0 draw versus Burnley.

However, following the draw at Burnley, Dean Smith guided Villa to another derby victory, a crushing 3-0 victory over West Brom. With El Ghazi netting another two goals and Traore getting the other.

Aston Villa backed up that performance by another impressive 3-0 victory against Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.

With Villa winning, despite Mings being sent off, and the goals being scored by El Ghazi and Traore again with Hause also on the score sheet.

El Ghazi equalising against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea

The final match of the month was a draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Villa had been 1-0 down, but El Ghazi equalised with his fifth goal of the month.

It was a brilliant month for the Villains and a fully deserved award for Dean Smith.
