Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech has been awarded the Dutch Eredivisie Player of the Month for October.

The 25-year-old played a crucial role in helping his side win all of their three league games against AZ Alkmaar,  Heerenveen and Feyenoord in October with a goal in each of the encounters.

Ziyech produced a man-of-the-match performance against AZ on October 7 with a goal and an assist in his side’s 5-0 rout over their visitors at the Johan Cryuff Arena.

The playmaker continued with a goal against Heerenveen a week later before helping Erik ten Hag's side to a 3-0 derby win over Feyenoord on October 28.

The Morocco international and Cameroon's Andre Onana who did not concede a goal in October were also included in the Dutch top-flight Team of the Month.

Ziyech has contributed six goals and three assists in as many league games for Ajax who occupy the second spot in the Dutch Eredivisie table with 28 points from 11 matches - five points adrift leaders PSV.
