PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month award – Premier League nominees for February

What a month it has been. We’ve witnessed Manchester City trim Liverpool’s lead at the top of the table to just one point, Fulham and Huddersfield sink further adrift at the bottom, and the race for the Golden Boot hot up – it really is all to play for as we enter the business end to the season.

Anyway, enough about team performances, and onto the players who made the magic happen. Let’s take a look at the Premier League nominees for the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month award for February…

Sergio Aguero

The Manchester City forward enjoyed a phenomenal month in February. Aguero hit back-to-back hat-tricks at the Etihad against Arsenal and Chelsea to equal Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 11 in the competition.

Furthermore, the Argentine also scored from the spot against West Ham to win the game 1-0 and earn his side a crucial three points.

Ashley Barnes

Burnley’s No.10 was in excellent form throughout February. The 29-year-old hit three goals in his four appearances, with those strikes coming in three consecutive games and helping seal impressive results against Tottenham and Manchester United.

Barnes also grabbed an assist in the 3-1 win against his former club, Brighton.

Aymeric Laporte

The Frenchman was instrumental in helping his side regain their footing in the title race during the month of February.

Laporte scored a crucial goal against Everton, set one up against Arsenal and was also handed one Man of the Match award for his performance against the Toffees, to crown an impressive month for the 24-year-old defender.

Paul Pogba

The rejuvenated midfielder continued his fine form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in February. Pogba hit two more goals in his four appearances throughout the month, whilst also setting up a further two as Manchester United staked a claim for a top four place.

Additionally, the French international won the WhoScored Man of the Match award for two of his four performances – impressive stuff.

Raheem Sterling

Sterling earned a perfect 10 rating from WhoScored for his performance in the 6-0 demolition of Chelsea, a game in which he grabbed two goals, including the opener.

The England international also set up two goals against Arsenal to cap off an impressive February for himself and the Citizens.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool’s colossal centre-back helped his side keep three clean sheets in their four games throughout February, winning a whopping 25 aerial duels and making 23 clearances in that time.

Van Dijk also managed to grab himself two goals, as the Reds ended the month sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League with a massive 5-0 win over Watford.
