Premier league’s October Player of the Month nominees

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

Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan, Chelsea winger Willian and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy are on the six-man shortlist, following an impressive one-month period.

Willian was impressive for Chelsea through the month, where he scored once and assisted twice as Chelsea won all their three matches. 

He scored the fourth in their 4-2 win over Burnley at Turf Moor and assisted one of Christian Pulisic's three goals. 

His exploits at the Turf Moor came after another impressive game at Southampton, where he assisted Mason Mount's goal. 

Gundogan has been in good form too for the defending champions, as they kept up the pace with League leaders Liverpool in the Premier League. 

Vardy too has been sensational for surprise package Leicester City, who are currently third behind City and Liverpool

The striker is among Leicester's driving force and scored a stunning hattrick last week against Southampton. 

Here is the full list of nominees. 

  • Jack Grealish
  • Ilkay Gundogan

  • Youri Tielemans  

The winner announced next Friday 8 November.
