Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew have won the Barclays Premier League player and manager of the month awards for November respectively.
Argentina international Aguero, currently sidelined with a knee injury, scored three goals and assisted two others to help the champions continue their chase for successive titles, three points behind leaders Chelsea.
The 26-year-old was named Football Supporters’ Federation Player of the Year for 2014 just last week. He is set to miss between four and six weeks with a knee ligament injury sustained in the third minute of last weekend’s 1-0 win over Everton.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is named the Premier League manager of the month after guiding his team to three wins out of four, including last Saturday’s 3-2 home win over Chelsea and the 1-0 loss at West Ham on November 29.
Pardew, 53, whose Newcastle side are 7th on the Premier League log with 23 points, has now won three Manager of the Month recognitions.
Newcastle face a trip to Arsenal on Saturday, while Man City are away at Leicester City same day.
