(PRWEB UK) 4 February 2014
Digital Sports Group, the Official Media Partner to the PFA, have today announced the winner of the prestigious FTBpro PFA Fans' Player of the Month award for January 2014, voted for by fans across the world.
Fans were asked to vote for their player of the month for January and they responded in their masses, giving their support to the players they feel have impressed them the most during the month.
The polls are now closed, the votes have been counted and it is now time to reveal the winner of the FTBpro PFA Fans' Player of the Month award for January 2014.
Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
It's that man once again, Liverpool's star striker Luis Suarez, who makes it a hat-trick of FTBpro PFA Fan's Player of the Month awards this season after having previously won the award in October and November.
It seems the Uruguayan just can't stop scoring and is currently the Premier League's top scorer by quite a distance, having scored 23 goals in the English top flight. With his nearest competitor, Manchester City's Sergio Aguero, sitting in second place with 15 goals.
The 27-year-old wasted no time in getting on the score sheet in 2014 with a wonderful free-kick scored against Hull at Anfield, helping Liverpool to a 2-0 win.
An 8-goal thriller at The Britannia in the following Premier League game boosted Suarez' goal tally, netting a brace as Liverpool ran out 5-3 winners to maintain their top four challenge.
Next up for Luis Suarez & Co came Paul Lambert's young Aston Villa side who raced into a 2-0 lead within 40 minutes at Anfield. Sturridge pulled a goal back on the cusp of half-time but Suarez' determination to get an equaliser meant he was fouled in the box by Brad Guzan resulting in a penalty, scored by Gerrard to tally things up at 2-2.
Suarez displayed a selfless performance against Bournemouth in the FA Cup Fourth Round in which he provided 2 assists for his team-mates as they progressed comfortably into the next round with a 2-0 win.
Everton travelled the short distance to Anfield for the famous Merseyside Derby in Liverpool's last match of January. In which Luis Suarez contributed an assist and goal to complete a 4-0 rout of their local rivals.
