Ladbrokes Premiership Team of the Month – January 2019

Another month has passed in the world of Scottish football. January saw most teams play only twice, but there were still some standout performances. This is EN4 News’ Premiership Team of the Month.

GK – Daniel Bachmann (Kilmarnock)

The on-loan Watford stopper was very impressive in Killie’s two matches in January – a win against Rangers and a goalless draw away to Aberdeen. He made some very impressive saves in the latter game, making sure that the Ayrshire men extended their unbeaten run.

 

RB – Mikael Lustig (Celtic)

The Swede helped to contribute towards his side’s run of three consecutive clean sheets in January. He also laid on both goals in the 2-0 win over St Johnstone on Wednesday.

 

CB – Kristoffer Ajer (Celtic)

It’s clear to see the different that Ajer makes when he is in the Celtic team. The powerful centre back put in some dominating performances last month.

 

CB – Stuart Findlay (Kilmarnock)

The ex-Newcastle defender just keeps getting better and better under Steve Clarke, putting in two very commanding performances in two big matches for Killie last month.

 

LB – Greg Taylor (Kilmarnock)

Like Findlay, the highly-rated full back looks to be reaching top form until Clarke and that showed in the last month. Very unlucky to not have a full Scotland cap yet.

 

CM – David Turnbull (Motherwell)

The youngster is enjoying a fantastic breakthrough season for Well, he scored both goals in the Lanarkshire men’s two 1-0 wins over Hibs and Dundee last month.

 

CM – Arnaud Djoum (Hearts)

The Cameroon international was in fine form last month, putting in two consecutive man of the match performances against Dundee and St Johnstone. Hearts fans will be desperately hoping that Djoum will sign a new contract and stay on beyond the end of this season.

 

CM – Callum McGregor (Celtic)

Even as a sitting midfielder, McGregor has been impressive with this attacking play for Celtic in the past few months. Scored in two of the club’s three wins last month, against Hamilton and St Johnstone.

 

ST – Oliver Burke (Celtic)

The highly-rated forward has enjoyed a very good start to his Celtic career. He netted twice on his league debut, in the 4-0 victory over St Mirren.

 

ST – Sam Cosgrove (Aberdeen)

Cosgrove’s cracking form continued in the last month, the Englishman netting twice in the Dons’ 3-0 win away to Hamilton.

 

ST – Scott Sinclair (Celtic)

The exciting winger’s dip in form looked to certainly be over now, much to the relief of Celtic fans. He netted in the side’s wins over St Mirren and Hamilton.
