Sergio Aguero Manchester City Striker has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month of January 2020 for a seventh time Record, while Jurgen Klopp,Liverpool boss won the Manager of the Month Award.  
Aguero overtakes former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who each received the prize on six occasions.

The Argentina international scored six times and registered an assist in three appearances in January, breaking numerous records including overtaking Thierry Henry as the Premier League’s top foreign goalscorer after his hat-trick in the 6-1 win at Aston Villa.

The treble at Villa Park was Aguero’s 12th hat-trick in the Premier League since arriving at City back in 2011 and it took him past former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer’s record of 11.

The 31-year-old fought off competition from Liverpool duo Alisson and Jordan Henderson, Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, Leicester’s Ayoze Perez and Southampton’s Jack Stephens.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has set a new record for most Manager of the Month awards in a single season with five, after having won in August, September, November and December.

Only Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard was able to prevent the German from winning all managerial awards this season, claiming the accolade in October.
