MAN. CITY midfielder ILKAY GUDOGAN saw off competition from team-mate Ruben Dias to be voted January’s POTM!
NEW YEAR, SAME SKILLS!
CHELSEA 1-3 MAN. CITY
The Germany absolutely ran the show alongside Kevin De Bruyne! He drove forward with the ball from deep, was super clever with his passing and made some awesome attacking runs. He even scored the game’s opener – and his first goal of 2021 – by firing a wonderful strike into the bottom corner!
MAN. CITY 1-0 BRIGHTON
This was probably his quietest game of the month, but he still managed to show his class! He had 81 touches of he ball – 20 more than the most-involved Brighton player – and had a 90% pass completion rate. Even without a goal or assist, he was key in keeping possession away from The Seagulls!
MAN. CITY 4-0 CRYSTAL PALACE
As well as winning MATCH’s Player Of The Month prize, Gundo was almost nominated for the Goal Of The Month too! He curled a shot from outside of the box past the in-form Vicente Guaita to put his side 2-0 ahead. He was given a rest for the last 20 minutes with the game totally wrapped up!
MAN. CITY 2-0 ASTON VILLA
The midfield maestro had another fine game, with his attacking runs from deep causing The Villans all sorts of problems! His pass completion rate was just over 95%, and he could’ve scored a brace before finally netting a penalty in the final moments of the match!
WEST BROM 0-5 MAN. CITY
Gundo grabbed a delightful double in a world-class performance against The Baggies! He could’ve been mistaken for Robert Lewandowski for his cool composure in front of goal, and would’ve been gutted to be denied a chance to complete his hat-trick after by being subbed off after 52 minutes!
MAN. CITY 1-0 SHEFF. UNITED
He wasn’t able to get into as many advanced positions as he had done in recent games, but he still bossed possession in midfield with over 91% completed passes! After an epic month, he finished January as Man. City’s top goalscorer in the Premier League with seven goals!
GOAL OF THE MONTH!
Tottenham midfielder TANGUY NDOMBELE has got top tekkers – just check out his goal against Sheffield United! His jaw-dropping flick over Aaron Ramsdale’s head from an outrageous angle won our Goal Of The Month prize!
