However, Garnacho's spectacular overhead kick against Everton emerged as the best, edging the Ghana international's scissor-kick against Brentford, as reported by the Premier League.

Despite losing the Goal of the Month to Garnacho, his strike against Brentford was West Ham United's best for November.

Both players have been in fine form for their respective clubs in the English Premier League.

Kudus is enjoying an outstanding start to his career in England, having scored six goals across all competitions for the Hammers.

According to Kudus, there is more to come from him as West Ham keeps their fine run in the EPL and Europa League.

"It is still the beginning for me, and I feel there is a lot more I can offer so I will keep working day in and day out to be the best I can be," he told West Ham TV, as quoted by Ghana Soccernet.

Kudus joined West Ham United in the summer transfer window from Ajax Amsterdam.

Mohammed Kudus wins Goal of the Month

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus won West Ham's November Goal of the Month.

The 23-year-old's scissor-kick goal against Brentford won the Goal of the Month, making it the second in a row for the former Ajax star.

Kudus' first Premier League goal, which was against Newcastle United was adjudged the best for October.

Moyes rues Kudus' absence ahead of AFCON 2023

Sports Brief also reported that West Ham United manager David Moyes has expressed disappointment over the impending absence of Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus and his African teammates for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Hammers will lose Kudus to Ghana, Nayef Aguerd to Morocco and Said Benrahma to Algeria in January and February next year.

The trio have been key to Moyes' team, playing a role in the comeback win over Tottenham Hotspurs last night in the English Premier League.
