Arsenal scoop awards double

Arsenal have picked up February's Barclaycard manager of the month and player of the month awards.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger claimed his seventh manager's award while Dennis Bergkamp and Edu have jointly been named as player of the month.

Arsenal have consolidated their position at the top of the Premiership and are unbeaten in 29 league matches.

Thierry Henry also received a special award for being the first player to hit 20 Premiership goals this season.

The French hot-shot's award is part of the Barclaycard race for the golden boot.

The winner of the special prize at the end of the season will earn 1,000 for every goal scored for the charity of his choice.

Arsenal have won all five of their matches in February and if they triumph at Ewood Park on Saturday they will equal their own record of staying unbeaten in 30 games.

Bergkamp, the Fifa world player of the year in 1993 and 1997, has been named player of the month four times but this is the first time Edu has received the award.

The Brazilian, who moved to Highbury in two years ago, has beat off stiff competition to carve out a place for himself in Arsenal's midfield this season.

Liverpool strikers Stan Collymore and Robbie Fowler were the first Premiership players to share the player of the month award in 1995/6.
