Man City winger claims accolade for third time after scoring five goals for the leaders in December

Raheem Sterling has won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award for December 2021.

The Manchester City attacker scored five times and claimed one assist across five matches during a month in which he reached 100 Premier League goals.

Sterling began December by assisting Ruben Dias’ opener in a 2-1 win at Aston Villa, before netting the first in a 3-1 success at Watford.

Against Wolverhampton Wanderers, he became the 32nd player to score 100 Premier League goals with a penalty to earn a 1-0 victory.

Another goal followed at Newcastle United, while he struck twice more in thrilling 6-3 Boxing Day win over Leicester City.

It is the third time Sterling has earned the prize and his first since November 2018.

The 27-year-old topped a seven-man shortlist that also included Joao Cancelo, James Maddison, Gabriel Martinelli, Mason Mount, Martin Odegaard and Son Heung-min.
