Everton midfielder Tom Davies has won the PFA Fans' Premier League Player of the Month award for January beating the likes of Dele Alli and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Over 58,000 votes were cast in the poll, which was held on the Sky Sports website and apps, with Davies claiming victory with 25,045 votes.
Tottenham midfielder Alli came second with 12,560 votes, while Swansea star Sigurdsson was third with 7,977 votes.
Rounding off the top six were Stoke striker Peter Crouch (6,124), Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez (4,957) and Tottenham striker Harry Kane (1,817).
The six candidates were chosen by our expert panel, which included Sky Sports pundits Peter Beagrie and Paul Merson, Mike Riley - general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials, and Malcolm Clarke - chairman of the Football Supporters' Federation.
And it is Davies, who scored one goal and grabbed two assists, who has come out on top thanks to your votes, which have been verified by an independent party.
The 18-year-old made his Everton debut in September during Everton's 3-0 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
He has gone on to make a further 10 appearances for the club, making some stand out performances in the league in January, including a man of the match performance in Everton's 4-0 win over Manchester City.
And it was a performance that drew praise from Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher.
"We spoke about him at Hull when he came on to replace Gareth Barry on that Friday night and he brought that extra energy into midfield," Carragher said on Super Sunday.
"For 18, and it showed in his interview as well, you can see the maturity in his game and the way he plays."
