It’s a new year of football, and an all-important new start to the Player of the Month race, for January, with the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and La Liga all in action.
While the December POTM victors are decided, we'll be keeping track of all the top POTM candidates.
Let’s dive into the front runners across the leagues for the January POTM awards.
Premier League POTM

- Andre Silva - Frankfurt - 7 Goals | 5 Wins
- Jadon Sancho - Dortmund - 3 Goals | 4 Assists | 3 Wins
- Thomas Muller - Bayern - 5 Goals | 5 Wins
The Bundesliga POTM race is a pretty close one, with a number of players with 7 or more goal contributions so far. Sure, Robert Lewandowski may be the favourite with 9 goal contributions in 6 games, however, we've come to expect such numbers from him, meaning Andre Silva or Jadon Sancho may have a good shot at securing the January POTM award!
La Liga POTM
The nominees for the La Liga POTM are now live!
- Yusuf En-Nesyri - Sevilla - 7 Goals | 4 Wins
- Luis Suarez - Atletico Madrid - 6 Goals | 1 Assist | 5 Wins
- Sergio Canales - Betis - 4 Goals | 3 Wins
- Frenkie De Jong - Barcelona - 3 Goals | 1 Assist | 5 Wins
You can vote for the winner here.
We predict Frenkie De Jong for the La Liga POTM for January, with the Dutchman having one of his better months to date, being pivotal in Barcelona's recent run of form in the league. That, as well as his meta standing in FUT, will mean that he'll bring in a lot of the fan vote!
Ligue 1 POTM
- Kevin Volland - AS Monaco - 4 Goals | 3 Assists
- Memphis Depay - Lyon - 3 Goals | 2 Assists
- Guillermo Maripan - AS Monaco - 4 Goals | 1 Assist
For Ligue 1 this month, there are only a selection of standout candidates, with Monaco's Kevin Volland leading the charge with 7 goal contributions. We expect the POTM voting to commence very shortly.
