Sterling, 24, scored three goals and added three assists as Manchester City won all three of their Premier League games in November. He had more touches in opposition boxes than any other player and was involved in more goals than any other player over the month.
The England winger has been at the center of alleged racist abuse over the past few days, as four Chelsea fans who were seen hurling abuse at Sterling during City’s 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday remain under investigation.
On the pitch, Sterling’s development under Pep Guardiola has been clear. This is the second time he’s won the Player of the Month accolade, with the first coming back in August 2016, as Sterling beat his teammates Leroy Sane and David Silva to the award.
The way he sets up chances for his teammates and finishes them off himself has seen him scored nine times and add eight assists in all competitions this season as he is City’s second highest goalscorer. For club and country he is an automatic starter with his pace, trickery and finishing giving defenders all over the world sleepless nights.
Sterling has now been a Premier League player for eight seasons and this year looks like being his best yet.
