MAN. CITY midfielder ILKAY GUNDOGAN bags his second MATCH Player Of The Month award on the spin!
BURNLEY 0-2 MAN. CITY
We reckon winning MATCH’s POTM prize for January gave Gundo a big boost, because he started February in fine form! He fizzed a pass across the six-yard box for Raheem Sterling to tuck home, registering his eighth Prem goal or assist in ten games – as many as his previous 61 games combined beforehand!
LIVERPOOL 1-4 MAN. CITY
We billed this mega match as Liverpool’s last chance to catch City in the title race – but Ilkay and co made sure they didn’t get a sniff! Despite sky-ing his penalty over the bar in the first half, the Germany international definitely made up for it after the break by bagging a brace!
MAN. CITY 3-0 TOTTENHAM
After winning a penalty in the first half, the midfield magician then struck twice after the break – sitting Davinson Sanchez on his bum for his second! It took him to double digits for league goals in a single season for the first time in his career, but he was denied a hat-trick after picking up a second-half knock!
ARSENAL 0-1 MAN. CITY
After sitting out City’s 3-1 away win at Goodison Park, the 30-year-old returned to the starting line-up for the trip to London! He didn’t reach his usual heights at the Emirates, but still worked hard for his side and looked dangerous when moving forward with the ball!
MAN. CITY 2-1 WEST HAM
West Ham are one the strongest sides at home this season, but City were still able to extend their winning run to 20 matches – and move 13 points clear at the top of the table! It was another quiet game for Gundo to end the month, but he showed his class with 94% pass accuracy!
GOAL OF THE MONTH!
JAMES WARD-PROWSE scored his fourth direct free-kick in the Prem this season with his effort against Newcastle last month – only two players have ever scored more in a single season. His long-range rocket v The Magpies was his best of 2020-21 so far!
