Only Sergio Aguero, Steven Gerrard, Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney, and Robin van Persie have been named Player of the Month on more occasions.

Furthermore, he becomes the first player in Premier League history to win it four times in one calendar year.

It is also the second time that he has collected the gong in back-to-back months. This is a feat that had only been achieved previously by Dennis Bergkamp, Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Mohamed Salah.
