The midfielder has been in sparkling form throughout the last few weeks, typified by his match-winning brace in our 2-0 triumph over league leaders Chelsea at White Hart Lane on January 4.
Prior to that, the England international notched twice in our 4-1 win at Watford on New Year's Day before heading in our first goal as we came back from two down to draw 2-2 with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on January 21.
In addition, he stepped off the bench to fire in our late equaliser as we went on to register a dramatic, last-gasp win over Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup on January 28.
In winning the award for the first time, Dele becomes the second Spur to take the prestigious monthly prize from the Premier League this season after Heung-Min Son picked up the gong in September.
