Here’s some happy news on your Friday. Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli took home the EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month award for January.
Alli scored five goals in January, more than any other player in the Premier League. It’s the second time this season that a Tottenham player has won the Player of the Month award; Son Heung-Min took the award home for September.
Swansea City boss Paul Clement won the Manager of the Month award, and West Ham’s Andy Carroll nabbed the Goal of the Month award for his overhead kick against Crystal Palace, inching out Olivier Giroud’s scorpion kick, also against Palace (poor Wayne Hennesey).
Harry Kane was also nominated for Player of the Month and Goal of the Month, while Mauricio Pochettino was nominated for Manager of the Month.
