SEOUL, Jan. 15 (Yonhap) -- Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min failed to win the Premier League Player of the Month for December. It goes to Manchester City's Raheem Sterling.

Sterling was voted the Premier League Player of the Month for December on Saturday(KST). He scored five goals and provided one assist during the month when City won all seven Premier League games.

Son Heung-min, who recorded four goals and one assist in five games last month, did not receive the award.

In addition to Son and Sterling, the shortlist for the Player of the Month included Joao Cancelo (MCI), James Maddison (LEI), Gabriel Martinelli (ARS), Mason Mount (CHE), and Martin Odegaard (ARS).

Sterling's boss Pep Guardiola has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for the second successive month.

After claiming the prize in November, the City boss has been recognized once more after overseeing a superb December.

City enjoyed a magnificent 100 percent Premier League record last month, winning all seven of their domestic matches to open up an eight-point lead at the top of the table.

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette's finish to stunning team goal against Southampton has earned him December award.
