The nominees for the September Premier League Player of the Month award have this afternoon been announced.
PL rumbles on
This past month saw most clubs in action in the English top-flight just 3 times, due to a lengthy international break, and cup commitments.
Nevertheless, it proved a crucial one in the race for the title, as Liverpool continued their perfect early-season form to make it 7 wins from 7.
Champions Manchester City sit 5 points adrift of the Reds in 2nd.
At the other end of the table, meanwhile, Watford’s struggles continued throughout September, with the Hornets propping up the table with just 2 points from their opening 7 fixtures.
Arsenal, Liverpool & Man City stars up for award
As such, on the back of last month’s action coming to an end earlier this week, the Premier League have this afternoon announced the 8 players to have been nominated for the award for September’s finest in the English top-flight.
There are representatives from 4 of the long-established ‘top-6’, in the form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Son Heung-min, and Manchester City pair Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.
Rounding out the nominees are Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, Bournemouth goalscorer Callum Wilson and Leicester City full-back Ricardo Pereira:
