The versatile defender starred for a Newcastle United defence who went through the entire without conceding a goal, despite travelling to leaders Arsenal in that run.

Brennan Johnson (NFO)
P4 W2 D2 L0 G2 A2
The Nottingham Forest forward was at the heart of their revival in January, scoring twice in a derby match against Leicester City, as well as supplying two assists in the month. 

Riyad Mahrez (MCI)

No player had as many goal involvements as the winger’s five in January. His three goals and two assists came in a run of matches where Manchester City faced Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Brighton & Hove Albion winger is enjoying a new lease of life under Roberto De Zerbi. His total of three goals included his first senior brace, along with an assist, in a 3-0 victory over Liverpool.

Marcus Rashford (MUN)
P4 W2 D1 L1 G3 A0
The Manchester United star continued his electric form with goals in three of his four matches, including the winner in the Manchester derby. He is looking to win the award for a second time this season, having already claimed the September 2022 prize.

David Raya (BRE)
P3 W2 D1 L0 CS2 S11
Brentford conceded only one goal all month and that was in part thanks to the heroics of their goalkeeper, who made 11 saves. 

Bukayo Saka (ARS)

The 21-year-old winger has starred for an Arsenal side with a five-point lead at the top. His two goal involvements came in significant wins, assisting in the north London derby before scoring against Man Utd.
