Neymar has been named player of the month for November in Spain's La Liga - the first Barcelona player to win the award.

The award began in September 2013, with Barca having won 68 La Liga games - and the 2014-15 title - since then.

It took the Brazil forward's tally of five goals in three games last month to finally persuade the panel to reward a Barca player at the 21st opportunity.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo is one of five players to have won it twice.

Atletico Madrid pair Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann, Celta Vigo's Nolito and ex-Arsenal and Real Sociedad's Carlos Vela are the others.
