Aguero and Koeman Named EPL’s Best ForJanuary

Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, and Southampton manager, Ronald Koeman, have been named the Premier League’s Player and Manager of the Month.

Both completed individual hat-tricks after winning the Barclays awards for the third time.

Five goals and one assist in January helped Aguero to claim the Barclays Player of the Month award for a third time.

The previous occasions were in October 2013 and November 2014.

Aguero, who won the Barclays Golden Boot last season, scored once against Watford and twice each against Crystal Palace and West Ham United in January.

He completed 70 successful passes and had a shooting accuracy of 57% in his 349 minutes played in the month.

The 27-year-old Argentinian beat Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe, Liverpool forward, Roberto Firmino, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Dele Alli, the Leicester City goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, and Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk to the award.

Koeman is the only Dutchman to have won the award and scooped his third Barclays Manager of the Month trophy thanks to victories by Southampton over Watford, West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United in January.

He piped Man City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, West Ham’s Slaven Bilic and Spurs head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, to the accolade, which he previously won in September 2014 and January 2015.
