Our talisman striker scored one and provided two assists during the month but it was his all-round play which earned him the highest rating of any Premier League player.

And that rating of 8.12 was also good enough to see Ivan selected in WhoScored's European Team of the Month made up with players from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, and Ligue 1.

The 25-year-old has played every minute in the Premier League so far this campaign, scoring twice with two assists. He has won six more aerial duels than any other top flight player and is the sixth-highest rated Premier League player this season according to WhoScored.
