Premier League Player of the Month nominees for September announced

The Premier League has revealed the nominees for the Player of the Month award for September.

Seven players have been nominated, with Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur among the clubs represented in the star-studded shortlist.

Supporters can cast their votes here, with the winner of the award expected to be announced next week.

Julian Alvarez – Manchester City

Games: 4
Goals: 2
Assists: 2

Julian Alvarez has been in phenomenal form for Man City this season, spearheading their run to the top of the Premier League table with four-goal contributions in four games.

The World Cup winner scored in the 5-1 mauling of Fulham at the Etihad Stadium before bagging two assists in the 3-1 victory at West Ham United.

After failing to effect the scoreline against Nottingham Forest, Alvarez returned to the score sheet with an astonishing free kick in the 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

Jarrod Bowen – West Ham United

Games: 4
Goals: 3
Assists: 0

After returning two goals and assists in the opening month of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign, Jarrod Bowen has shown no signs of letting up, bagging three goals in four September fixtures.

His first of the month came against Luton Town before extending his exceptional run of form with goals against Liverpool and Sheffield United.

Pedro Neto – Wolverhampton Wanderers

Games: 4
Goals: 1
Assists: 3

Pedro Neto has emerged as a standout performer for Wolves this season, collecting a goal and four assists in the Premier League – the joint-most goal contributions in the division.

Four of his five-goal contributions came in September, notably orchestrating Wolves’ remarkable victory over defending champions Man City.

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool

Games: 4
Goals: 2
Assists: 2

Mohamed Salah bagged two goals and two assists in September while creating 11 chances for his side in a standout performance.

The only blemish from his near-spotless September record was his inability to affect the outcome of the controversial defeat against Tottenham.

Heung-min Son – Tottenham Hotspur

Games: 4
Goals: 6
Assists: 0

Following the departure of his former partner in crime, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son has shouldered the burden of scoring goals for Tottenham this season.

The South Korean has done so emphatically, returning six goals in September, including a brace in the derby against Arsenal and a strike against Liverpool.

Kieran Trippier – Newcastle United

Games: 4
Goals: 0
Assists: 4

Kieran Trippier has been outstanding for Newcastle at both ends of the pitch, contributing four assists and three consecutive clean sheets in September.

Three of the Magpies captain’s four assists came in the historic 8-0 victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, while the other came in a 2-0 win over Burnley.

Ollie Watkins – Aston Villa

Games: 4
Goals: 4
Assists: 1

After enduring a slow start to the season, Ollie Watkins has burst into life for Villa over the last few weeks, bagging four goals and an assist in September.

Hoping to earn a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, the striker ended the month in fine form, netting a winner at Chelsea before bagging his second Premier League hat-trick in a 6-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.
