The England international was in outstanding form for City in a month which saw us win all seven Premier League matches.
Sterling accumulated a league-high tally of five goals in December, while his winning penalty in our 1-0 home win over Wolves also saw the 27-year-old secure his 100th Premier League career strike.
Raheem’s nomination comes hard on the heels of his short-listing for the December Premier League Player of the Month prize.
Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, James Maddison of Leicester City, Spurs’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) and Arsenal duo Martin Ødegaard & Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal) are also in the running for the PFA award.
This is a fan poll only with voting for the award ending at midnight on Monday 10 January.
