Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has beaten teammate Harry Kane to the Premier League Player of the Month award for January.
Alli and Kane each scored five league goals in January as Spurs went unbeaten, with impressive wins over Watford, Chelsea and West Brom followed by draws against Manchester City and Sunderland.
Alli took the prize, having scored braces against Watford and Chelsea and netted in the draw with City, as well as producing a spectacular assist for one of Kane’s three goals against West Brom.
Kane, who also scored twice against Watford, contributed assists against Watford and City.
Everton right-back Seamus Coleman was also a strong contender, having featured in a defence that did not concede in their three games in January as well as contributing a match-winning goal against Crystal Palace and an assist.
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, who scored three goals and provided two assists, and Gylfi Sigurdsson, whose two goals and two assists helped new Swansea boss Paul Clement claim the Manager of the Month award.
