Ilkay Gundogan has been named Premier League Player of the Month for January.
The midfielder delivered a string of sensational league performances, scoring five times, including a goal at Chelsea and a wonderful double against West Brom.
He was central to City’s perfect month, which saw us win all six of our Premier League games as we moved top of the table.
City also won three cup matches in January, with our nine wins in all competitions the most by a team in the top four tiers of English football in a single month since the formation of the Football League in 1888.
Gundogan, who many believe is in the form of his life, says winning every game last month is a hugely significant achievement and demonstrates the confidence running through the City squad.
“The highlight of January was all month because we won all of our games,” he said.
“I think it was the run and the feeling that I had inside of myself that you are so strong as a team at the moment and not just yourself. That is just an amazing feeling.
“I had that feeling a few times in the season where we had 100 points or the season after when we won the league one point ahead of Liverpool or when I played for Dortmund.
“You have that feeling sometimes when you feel so strong and unbeatable and that was the best moment that I had throughout the month.”
