Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan and John Stones have both been nominated January’s EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month award.

City enjoyed a perfect January, winning all six Premier League games we were involved in, a run of form that saw City go top of the table.

A fantastic run of form for both players is to thank for the nominations. Gundogan has been a machine in midfield. Not only defending, but assisting and scoring. His presence has been especially heightened since Kevin De Bruyne’s absence to injury. A once maligned player by City fans has seen him quickly become a favorite. John Stones has enjoyed a defensive renaissance as he and Ruben Dias have been an amazing partnership. Confidence seems to have played a key part in that as Stones seems unbeatable in defense and he is even scoring now as well!

Other nominees include- Craig Dawson (West Ham), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Bernd Leno (Arsenal), James Maddison (Leicester City), Matheus Pereira (West Brom), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal).

Good luck to the guys!
