Cape Town - The Premier League confirmed in-form Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane as the player of the month for January.

Kane was named Barclays Player of the Month after scoring five goals in four league fixtures during January.

The Spurs forward beat Crystal Palace's Dwight Gayle, Southampton's Jose Fonte, Chelsea's Oscar, Liverpool's Emre Can and Arsenal's Santi Cazorla to the award. 

The 21-year-old's January performances included the brace he scored twice as Spurs thumped league leaders Chelsea 5-3 on New Year's Day.

Kane also scored against Crystal Palace, Sunderland and West Brom.

"New Year's Day was a great day for me and a great day for Tottenham as well," Kane told premierleague.com.

"I got the two goals against Chelsea which was a great night for us, and I managed to finish it off quite well against West Brom as well so it was a great month for me and Tottenham as a club.

"We're still in quite a few competitions and we're doing well in the league, so it's exciting times ahead. February's going to be a big month as well, I'm really looking forward and hopefully we can all continue our form."

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman picked up his second Barclays Manager of the Month award.

The Saints beat Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle in January.

"It means a lot," said Koeman, upon receiving the award.

"It's not for the manager but it shows the great month that Southampton had in January. The great wins against Arsenal at home, Man Utd away and a difficult one away at Newcastle have seen [to it] that I have won this title.

"For the feeling of the players it's important to have a win against a big team because it means a lot, it gave the players a lot of confidence and we showed that confidence after the Arsenal game."

*The award is decided by votes from a Barclays Panel, a group of former players, journalists and key football stakeholders
