November's FUN88 player of the month announced

Newcastle United FC
Jacob Murphy is the FUN88 player of the month for November.
The England under-21 international winger was given his chance due to Christian Atsu's injury - and grabbed it with both hands, with some eye-catching displays despite Newcastle's poor form.
United only picked up one point in November but Murphy's performances saw him pick up 61.6 per cent of the vote.
Murphy, who joined the Magpies from Norwich in the summer, will be presented with his award ahead of Saturday's home game against Leicester City.
One lucky fan will get the chance to hand the prize over to Murphy at St. James' Park at the weekend. The winner will be announced via FUN88's Twitter account, @fun88eng, on Thursday afternoon.
The winners of runners-up prizes of tickets to the game will also be announced by FUN88 shortly.
