Etihad Player of the Month: September

Voting for the Etihad Player of the Month for September opens today with David Silva, James Milner and Frank Lampard all nominated.

And don’t forget, by voting for the September award, you are automatically entered into a draw  where the winner will present the accolade to the winning player in person at Carrington (UK voters only) or receive a personal video message from the player (overseas only).

Here are the three nominees:


Lampard has quickly become a huge crowd favourite among the City fans. He also showed his professionalism and perfect timing when coming on and scoring the equaliser against his former club Chelsea. He followed that with two more goals against Sheffield Wednesday – and two assists – and another vital goal in the 4-2 win at Hull.



Hitting peak form during September, Silva has been at his magical best creating havoc against the opposition in the final third. His two vital assists against Hull City only tell half the story – Silva has set up countless more scoring chances for his team-mates and was unfortunate not to score a couple himself and win a penalty in Munich.



England midfielder Milner forced his way back into the starting line-up with a series of fine displays during September. His all-action performances have drawn praise from manager Manuel Pellegrini and he added the right does of energy and determination at vital times last month.

Vote now - the poll closes at noon on 12 October.
