The Premier League awards for March were presented on Friday, and the north London clubs prevailed. 

First and primarily, Harry Kane was awarded Premier League Player of the Month for March. Kane has officially won the award for the seventh time in succession, marking a new record. Kane has surpassed Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard to level for the first spot in the all-time monthly award rankings with Sergio Aguero of Manchester City.

In March, he produced four Premier League goals and contributed two assists as Spurs grabbed nine out of a possible 12 points by upsetting Everton, Brighton, and West Ham. After Son Heung-min in October 2020, Kane is the very first Tottenham player to clinch the monthly award.

Kane overcame Matty Cash, Trevoh Chalobah, Kai Havertz, Dejan Kulusevski, Andrew Robertson, Bukayo Saka, and Ivan Toney for the honour. Secondly, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was awarded Premier League Manager of the Month for March, vying against Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel, and Brendan Rodgers.

Arsenal is presently in fourth place, three points clear of Tottenham Hotspur, but they have a game in hand. Few would have anticipated this position at the beginning of this season. Arsenal won three games in March, defeating Aston Villa, Leicester, and Watford, netting six goals and conceding two. Their lone loss came at the hands of Liverpool.

The Gunners have been astonishingly stable in recent months, positioning themselves in pole position for a top-four result and Champions League entry. The final stretch of their season will be fascinating to watch. Arsenal still has encounters against Chelsea, Manchester United, West Ham United, and Tottenham Hotspur, but with men like Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli in fine shape, Arteta will be confident of ending the season in the top four.
