Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has been awarded the EA Sport’s Player of the Month award for November

The 24-year-old winger proved to be as impressive as ever by helping City win all three of their Premier League games against Southampton, Manchester United and West Ham last month.

In the process, Sterling added three goals and three assists to his tally in November as City continued their impressive start to the 2018/19 campaign.

While Sterling has been at the centre of racism controversy over the past weekend, EA Sports gave him a timely boost by naming him their Player of the Month on Twitter.

The England international emerged victor seven-man shortlist including City teammates Leroy Sane and David Silva along with Andrew Robertson, Felipe Anderson, Lucas Digne and Moussa Sissoko.
