Marouane Fellaini has been named the Barclays Premier League player of the month for November.
The Belgian star scored four goals and was closely involved in two more as he helped Everton maintain a grip on a top-six place in the table.
Fellaini began the month by scoring twice in the Blues’ 2-2 draw at Fulham before following that up with another goal and a deft assist in a 2-1 victory over Sunderland at Goodison Park.
He was then involved in Steven Naismith’s goal at Reading but also picked up a yellow card which saw him miss the visit of Norwich.
But he was back with a bang against Arsenal, rifling home from 20 yards to earn his side a 1-1 draw and a deserved share of the spoils.
Fellaini was presented with his award at Finch Farm earlier this week and becomes the seventh Everton player to win the award since its inception in August 1994.
He said: “At the moment, I am playing well. I am happy, but the most important things are the team and the Club.
“I try to give my maximum in every game. The manager likes it when I play in attack, so at the moment, it’s good for me and the Club. I’ve been scoring the goals and I work hard on the pitch.
“This season we have played well. We thank the fans because we have great support. Everybody wants to play Champions League next season so we work hard for this and hopefully we can finish in the top four.”
