Rooney and Moyes takes January gongs

The England striker scored six goals during the month and in doing

so soared to the top of the Barclays Race for the Golden Boot,

becoming the first player to reach 20 goals this season. Rooney,

who has scored 20 times in just 23 Premier League games this

season, joins Steven Gerrard in winning the award for a fifth time.

January’s manager of the month is David Moyes, who wins the award

for a sixth time after his Everton team registered three wins and a

draw in the Premier League. The decisions were made by the Barclays

awards panel, which includes representatives from football’s

governing bodies, the media and fans.
