Eight players have been shortlisted for the December 2023 EA SPORTS Player of the Month award. The public votes will be combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide the winner, who will be announced next week.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
Liverpool’s right-back-turned-midfielder set the tone for a memorable December by scoring a sensational late winner in the Reds' 4-3 comeback win over Fulham. He went unbeaten during a month that included matches against Manchester United and Arsenal, producing three goal involvements, three clean sheets, and creating the joint-most chances of any player in December.
Matheus Cunha (Wolves)
Cunha was directly involved in six goals in seven appearances as Wolverhampton Wanderers won four of their seven matches. He scored or assisted in all but two of his outings across the month.
Mohammed Kudus (West Ham)
West Ham's flying winger scored four times in December, helping to inspire victories over Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Man Utd and Wolves as the Hammers moved into the top six.
Michael Olise (Crystal Palace)
A stunning return from injury for the tricky winger, who scored or assisted five goals in a tough month for Crystal Palace, who won only one of their seven matches.
Cole Palmer (Chelsea)
The Chelsea star scored four goals and set up a further two, ending the month with three goal involvements in one match to inspire a 3-2 win at Luton Town.
Marcos Senesi (Bournemouth)
A fantastic month for the defender, who contributed at both ends of the pitch. The Argentinian scored two goals and assisted one, and helped Bournemouth keep three clean sheets as they lost only one of six matches.
Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth)
December’s top scorer netted six goals to move only two off the top of the 2023/24 leading scorers’ chart. His goals included a first senior hat-trick to inspire a late win at Nottingham Forest.
Son Heung-min (Spurs)
Son’s eight goal involvements were a league-high total in December as he captained an injury-hit Spurs team to four wins, keeping them in touch with the teams at the top.
