Arsenal’s Wenger & Giroud win the Barclays Manager & Player of the Month awards for March

Arsenal have scooped a double award on Friday as Arsene Wenger and Olivier Giroud won the Barclays Manager and Player of the Month awards for March.

The Gunners boss has now scooped 14 awards in total which is more than any of the current managers in the Barclays Premier League.

Arsenal recorded four wins in March with victories over Everton, QPR, West Ham and Newcastle.

Olivier Giroud was in unstoppable form during the month as he led the line for Arsenal with 5 goals and 1 assist. Giroud scored against Everton, QPR, West Ham and Newcastle.

Since returning from a three-match ban on 11 January, Olivier Giroud has netted nine goals from as many league starts.

The Gunners return to action on Saturday when they take on Liverpool at the Emirates.

A place in the top four is up for grabs, with Arsenal beginning the day in third while Liverpool are fifth and five points off of fourth-placed Manchester United.
