Leon Bailey, the dynamic Jamaican winger, has been voted the Player of the Month for November and December at Aston Villa. This remarkable achievement is a testament to his exceptional skills, hard work, and significant contribution to the team’s success this season.
According to a statistics sheet released a month ago, Bailey had the highest impact per minute played in the English Premier League (EPL). The former Bayern Leverkusen player has also racked up six goals to match his five assists in his 18 games for the Villians.
Bailey has established himself as a key player for Aston Villa since the start of the season. His performances on the pitch and ability to score crucial goals have made him a fan favourite. With blistering pace, dribbling ability, and accurate crosses, he has troubled opposition defences throughout the season.
However, during the months of November and December, Bailey displayed a different level of consistency and played an instrumental role in Aston Villa’s run of form. His goal-scoring exploits and creativity in the final third were pivotal to the team’s victories during this period, which saw Villa beating the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal.
Not only did Bailey contribute with goals and assists, but his overall impact on the team was also evident.
He showcased awareness, vision, and good decision-making abilities, often creating scoring opportunities for his teammates. His work rate and defensive contributions were commendable as well, playing a vital role in the team’s overall defensive solidity, as Aston Villa ended 2023 in 2nd position, levelled on points with Liverpool in 1st place.
