Defensive trio up for November Etihad award

Defensive trio up for November Etihad award
Our Etihad Player of the Month vote for November is a defender special.

John Stones, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo are the nominees after City kept three clean sheets, climbed the Premier League, and progressed into the Champions League Round of 16.

John Stones had an outstanding return to the first team with his performances away to Olympiakos and Burnley in particularly impressive.

Ruben Dias has hardly put a foot wrong since joining City from Benfica.

Calm and confident, Dias has settled in amazingly well and helped City’s defence become one of the meanest in the top flight.

In fact, since his debut away to Leeds United, City have conceded just six goals and kept six clean sheets in 11 games.

Joao Cancelo continues to impress, often playing as a left-back as opposed to his natural right-back role.

His highlight last month was a superb curling shot against Olympiakos – his second goal for the Club.

Voting closes on Thursday, 10 December at 5pm.
