22 January 2014 12:59

Another month, another FTBpro PFA Fan's Player of the Month (Premier League) award to be handed out and there certainly is no shortage of contenders for January's prestigious accolade. There have been some impressive team performances this month, from Spurs beating Manchester United at Old Trafford on New Years Day to Sunderland thrashing Fulham 4-1 at Craven Cottage to kick start their relegation escape. And whilst these team performances deserve recognition, that's not what we're here for.

We're here to look at the most consistently brilliant performances in the Premier League during January so far, and as mentioned above, there have been quite a few. First up is Liverpool's Luis Suarez (surprise surprise), arguably the most in-form player in the Premier League. 3 goals in 3 appearances from the Uruguayan have kept Liverpool in contention at the top of the Premier League and Suarez top of the Premier League scoring charts.

Manchester City's Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure has also caught the eye this month. Scoring 2 goals in 3 appearances whilst impressively marshalling the City midfield. Toure also boasts a 91% pass accuracy during the 3 Premier League games this month making him a vital component of the goal scoring machine that is Manchester City.

Next up is Premier League leaders Arsenal's Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla. The 29-year-old has been in the shadow of Mesut Ozil since his arrival at The Emirates but Cazorla has been the star this month, scoring 2 goals in 3 appearances in the Premier League and creating 7 scoring chances for his team mates.

Eden Hazard has recently quashed speculation linking him with a January move to French giants PSG and Chelsea will be thankful as the Belgium international is currently in fine form for the London club. The 23-year-old has scored 1 goal in 3 Premier League games and created 5 chances for his team-mates but the stand out statistic for Hazard is his 100% shot accuracy so defenders beware, if he has a sight on goal he'll hit the target.

Adebayor has been revitalised since Tim Sherwood took over as Tottenham manager, scoring 3 goals in 3 appearances so far during January including Spurs opener against Manchester United at Old Trafford helping the London club to a famous 2-1 victory against the current Premier League champions.

French international Yohan Cabaye has been instrumental in Newcastle's successes this season and was on hand to help his team during January with 2 goals in 3 appearances whilst creating 7 goal scoring opportunities for his team-mates, all whilst maintaining an impressive pass and shot accuracy.

Of course who ever wins January's FTBpro PFA Fans' Player of the Month award is down to you, the fans. So who gets your vote? Will it be red hot Suarez? Ice cool Eden Hazard? Or is there another player who you think deserves recognition and the prestigious FTBpro PFA award? You can vote for your FTBpro PFA Fans' Player of the Month award by clicking here.
