Argentinaa and Manchester City forward, Sergio Aguero has won the English Premier League Player of the Month for January.
This makes it his third EPL player award after winning the award in October 2013 and November 2014.
Aguero started January with a towering headed goal against Watford, giving City a 2-1 win in the process, but was unable to find the net when his side clashed against Everton.

His goal against Norwich in the FA Cup and header against Everton in the Capital One Cup don’t count towards the award, but underline what a fantastic month Kun had.
