Winning the PFA Premier League Player of the Month award is no easy feat, with numerous players pushing to secure the award every month during the league season.
The award is given to the best performing player in the month and it has grown in popularity in recent years, amongst fans and the players themselves.
The first player to ever win the award was Jurgen Klinsmann of Tottenham Hotspur back in August 1994 and since then, several players have gone on to win the award on multiple occasions.
Below, we’ve taken a look at the top five players with the most Player of the Month awards.
1. HARRY KANE – 6
The Spurs forward’s first Player of the Month award came in January 2015 and since then, he has already won five more.
His prolific goal scoring form in recent seasons has seen him shoot up the pile of winners and claim the top spot.
With the Englishman still seemingly having plenty of more years to play in the Premier League, he is expected to continue increasing this record. His most recent Player of the Month award came in December 2017.
2. STEVEN GERRARD – 6
The Liverpool legend is tied with Kane at the top of the pile, with his first award coming in March 2001.
Although Gerrard has never won the Premier League title, his brilliant midfield performances during his playing career saw him rewarded with this award on multiple occasions.
His last award came in March 2014, where he and team-mate Luis Suarez were both announced as joint winners.
3. SERGIO AGUERO – 5
The Manchester City striker has won the Player of the Month award five times since he joined the club in the summer of 2011.
Aguero has 153 Premier League goals and is arguably one of the greatest forwards that the top flight has ever seen.
His last-minute heroics to win City the title in 2012 is the highlight of his Premier League career, but he can also be proud of his five monthly awards, which, could still rise before he retires.
He first won the award in October 2013 and his most recent award was in January 2018.
4. ROBIN VAN PERSIE – 5
The Netherlanda international won two of the awards in one season as he fired Manchester United to the Premier League title in 2012/13.
5. WAYNE ROONEY – 5
Manchester United’s all-time top scorer also won five Player of the Month awards during his hugely successful Premier League career.
Rooney spearheaded the glory days of the club and his first monthly award came in February 2005.
His last Player of the Month award came in January 2010 and since, he has played for Everton and MLS side DC United.
