Sergio Aguero has been named the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for February.

The Argentinian striker has been given the award after scoring seven goals in his four Premier League matches during the month.

Aguero scored hat-tricks in successive home fixtures against Arsenal and Chelsea and converted the decisive penalty in Manchester City's 1-0 home win over West Ham United.

Votes from the public on the EA SPORTS website were combined with those of the 20 club captains and a panel of football experts to decide the winner.

The Man City striker saw off competition from Ashley Barnes, Sean Longstaff, Sadio Mane, Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Virgil van Dijk and Wilfried Zaha.

It is the sixth time that Aguero has won the monthly prize, which is the joint-highest number along with Harry Kane and Steven Gerrard.

His goals have also taken him into the lead in the race for the Golden Boot

The 30-year-old has scored 18 PL goals in total this season, one more than his nearest rival Mohamed Salah.

Aguero's form has been important for his team too, helping City win all of their February fixtures as they bid to retain their Premier League title.
