5 active Premier League stars to have never won the Player of the Month award
#4 Kevin De Bruyne
De Bruyne is one of the best midfielders in the world of football at the moment. If he continues his current run of form, he will certainly challenge Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for 2018 Ballon d'Or award. He is frequently portrayed as one of the greatest modern-day attacking midfielders due to his technique, speed, passing range, and powerful shooting abilities.
The Belgian midfielder has scored 7 goals and provided 11 assists in City's 18 Premier League games this season. In this rate, he will certainly beat Fabregas' and Ozil's joint assist record of 19. However, he is unlucky to miss out on the Player of the Month award in the first four months of this season.
He is not just a one-season phenomenon as he topped the assist makers table with 18 assists last season too. The shocking fact is that he claimed nine Man-of-the-Match awards from his 33 starts. Despite all these exploits, he couldn't win one Player of the Month award.
Most probably, the Genk academy product will win this award this season due to his supreme form.Modified 22 Dec 2017, 23:20 IST
