Villa claim monthly award double
Martin O'Neill and Gabriel Agbonlahor
O'Neill and Agbonlahor helped Villa enjoy a successful November
Aston Villa have earned a double honour with manager Martin O'Neill and forward Gabriel Agbonlahor both winning Premier League awards for November.

O'Neill has been named manager of the month after Villa grabbed four straight wins and scored 11 goals last month.

He has now won the award five times - twice as Villa boss.

Striker Agbonlahor took the player award in a successful month which saw him score the winner in the derby win over Birmingham.

"We're particularly pleased, obviously delighted with Gabby because he's playing out of his skin at the moment," O'Neill told BBC Radio West Midlands.

"And if we can just keep a bit of consistency going, I think that's really important for us, especially over this crucial period of Christmas and New Year.

"It's been a really good month for us, November. I was naturally very concerned about it beforehand, when we had three away games on the trot.

"So for us to come out of that having won all the games in November was obviously particularly pleasing."
