The prestigious prize, voted for by fans, was won by Erling Haaland last month - and the Norwegian's superb start to life in sky blue means he is again among the trio of nominees for September.
Here are the three candidates...
Four games, five goals and another wonderful month for Erling.
With a tally of 14 goals in 10 appearances, he has made the best start to a season of any striker to wear our club colours - an incredible stat.
He began with a far-post volley at Aston Villa before adding another couple in the 4-0 win in Sevilla.
He then scored the acrobatic late winner against his former club Borussia Dortmund before rounding off September with a long-range effort against Wolves.
Will Erling secure back-to-back Etihad awards?
KEVIN DE BRUYNE
It's no surprise to find Kevin De Bruyne's name on the Etihad Player of the Month shortlist.
Our Belgian maestro is almost a permanent resident!
And while Haaland bagged five goals in September, KDB claimed five assists.
Often nicknamed 'The Assist King', it was Kevin's superb cross that set up Haaland's volley at Aston Villa.
And at the ground where he scored four goals last season, De Bruyne assisted two more for his team-mates in a 3-0 victory at Molineux.
A fine (and typical) month for KDB!
Energy, inventiveness and goals - Phil Foden brought all of the aforementioned and more in a terrific September.
Our England playmaker was on target in the 4-0 win in Sevilla and was one of the main reasons City recovered from a goal down to beat Dortmund 2-1 with a stellar cameo off the bench.
Foden ended the month with a wonderful, deft finish in the victory at Wolves to ensure he just edged out team-mates Joao Cancelo, John Stones and Manuel Akanji to join De Bruyne and Haaland in the September vote.
