EA SPORTS Player of the Month shortlist revealed

3 Feb 2017
Premier League Player of the Month January shortlist, 030217

Spurs' Kane and Alli are against Arsenal's Sanchez, Everton's Coleman and Swansea's Sigurdsson for January award

Five players who stood out in January for their Premier League clubs have been nominated for the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award.

Do Harry Kane's five goals beat the five scored by his Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Dele Alli? Or do the talismanic qualities of Alexis Sanchez deserve to be recognised?

Are Seamus Coleman's displays at the back for Everton last month a worthy winner or should Gylfi Sigurdsson's winning strikes for Swansea City count for more?

You can help decide who wins by voting below*. You have until 23.59pm on Monday 6 February to decide.

Dele Alli

P5 W3 D2 L0 G5 A1
No player scored more than the Spurs midfielder's five goals in January, including the two that ended Chelsea's record winning run. Alli also provided one assist.

Seamus Coleman

That Everton enjoyed a 100% record in January with no goals conceded is in part thanks to their right-back, who struck the late winner at Crystal Palace and provided an assist.
