Ilkay Gundogan and David Silva have both been shortlisted for October’s Premier League awards.

The German midfielder is amongst the Player of the Month contenders, while El Mago has been nominated for the Goal of the Month prize, after his sweetly struck volley against Crystal Palace.

Gundogan shone as deep-lying midfielder throughout October, with a 94% pass accuracy rate which highlights his intelligence use of the ball and he was on the score sheet, too, expertly executing a scissor-kick in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

The 29-year-old is up against Jack Grealish, Dean Henderson, Youri Tielemans, Jamie Vardy and Willian for the prize.

s volley was everything we’ve come to expert from the technically gifted Spaniard.

It was a fine finish from an equally impressive assist, with the skipper profiting for Raheem Sterling’s impudent scooped pass.

He will battle Aaron Connolly, Douglas Luiz, Matty Longstaff, James Maddison, Jay Rodriguez and Anthony Martial for the award.
