Manchester City‘s midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, has been awarded the Premier League Player of the Month once again, winning it back-to-back in January and February this year.

His manager, Pep Guardiola, has also been named Manager of the Month for the second consecutive time, as Manchester City continued to take full control of the title race.

Gundogan has now managed 9 league goals in January (5) and February (4) in February while Guardiola’s side won all five of their fixtures in this period.

The German international after missing a penalty, scored twice in the 4-1 triumph against Liverpool at Anfield, while also getting two goals against Spurs and setting up Raheem Sterling’s effort at Burnley.

Gundogan also featured in City’s wins away to Arsenal and at home to West Ham.

He missed the start of the campaign after testing positive for Covid-19 but has been a monster in the heart of City’s central midfield ever since.

The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder beat Fulham defender Joachim Andersen, Leicester winger Harvey Barnes, City team-mate Joao Cancelo, Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, West Ham’s Jesse Lingard, Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves and Leeds forward Raphinha to the award in February.

Gundogan said: “I am very proud to win this award again – but I am most proud of being part of this amazing team.

“To win all our games in February, like we did in January, is amazing. I get the sense we are playing really good football and being part of that makes me happy.

“Hopefully we can continue like this because, ultimately, winning trophies is what matters. I know all the squad want that to happen and we will try our best from now until the end of the season.”
