Six players have been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award for October.

Manchester City are unsurprisingly represented after their stellar start to the campaign continued throughout the month, winning all three fixtures and scoring 12 times.

Manchester City’s most recent win, a 3-2 shootout against West Brom at The Hawthorns, solidified their status as the fastest starters to a Premier League season in history. They’ve won nine games, drawn once and scored a whopping 36 goals in the process.

Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane lead the way for The Citizens, with the former pulling the strings and creating six chances over three matchdays (grabbing three assists), while the latter scored and assisted in all three fixtures.

Nacho Monreal has played a hand in Arsenal’s steadying of the ship following a troublesome start to the campaign, scoring the opening goal in victories over Brighton & Hove Albion and Everton.

Experienced Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray used the month of October to remind everyone how he finished as the top goalscorer in the Championship in 2012/13 with Crystal Palace, netting a brace against West Ham and an equaliser against Southampton.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope aided Burnley’s positive start to the campaign with 21 saves and two clean sheets from four outings in October, giving manager Sean Dyche something to think about when Tom Heaton returns from injury.

Last but not least is Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha, who scored vital goals in games against Chelsea and West Ham, with his stoppage-time strike against The Hammers earning his side a desperately needed point.
