Man City reveal three stars nominated for player of the month
Erling Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden have been nominated for the Etihad Manchester City Player of the Month award.
Haaland scooped the August prize after making a blistering start to his City career, and this month he has stepped his performances up to another level. Five goals in four games this month means Haaland has scored 14 times in his opening 10 outings for the Blues, the best ever start to a season for any City striker.
His September goals have been superb too — a stunning acrobatic finish against Borussia Dortmund is arguably worthy of an award in itself.
De Bruyne usually takes some time to fins his rhythm at the start of a new season, but in September the Belgian provided five assists. He teed up Haaland with superb crosses against Aston Villa and Sevilla, and is well on his way to enjoying another fine season at the Etihad.
Foden has impressed this month too, despite Pep Guardiola admitting that the winger hadn’t been at his best level during the first few weeks of the season.
The 22-year-old scored a brilliant solo goal in the 4-0 routing of Sevilla and scored with an audacious flick against Wolves last weekend. His goals aside, Foden’s impact off the bench was noticeable in the comeback win against Dortmund.
