October’s Etihad Player of the Month Nominees

October's Etihad Player

As October’s draws to a close, it’s time to cast your vote for the Etihad Player of the Month from the shortlist of standout performers. This past month has seen Manchester City achieve four victories in both the Premier League and Champions League, highlighted by a resounding 3-0 triumph over Manchester United in the season’s first derby.

City’s European campaign has been particularly impressive, with an unbeaten run of 17 games, including crucial away wins against RB Leipzig and Young Boys. Pep Guardiola’s squad has once again delivered a thrilling month of football.

The selection of the Player of the Month nominees was a challenging task, but for October’s vote, three exceptional players have made the cut: Rico Lewis, Erling Haaland, and Phil Foden.

Rico Lewis, the versatile defender, has consistently left his mark when called upon by Guardiola, contributing to City’s successes in both the Champions League and Premier League. Lewis showcased his skills in midfield during the victories against RB Leipzig and Young Boys, even earning the title of UEFA Man of the Match for his performance in the latter. Despite a narrow defeat to Arsenal, Lewis demonstrated resilience and determination while filling in for Rodrigo in midfield.

Erling Haaland, City’s number nine, is an undeniable contender for the Etihad Player of the Month, having scored five goals in five games. His impressive start to the 2023/24 season culminated in a brace against RB Leipzig and the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory over Brighton at the Etihad. Haaland’s two goals against Manchester United earned him the title of the fastest player to reach 20 goals in Premier League away fixtures, achieving this feat in just 23 appearances. Haaland continues to be a dominant force for City, displaying no signs of slowing down.

Phil Foden, the England international, has secured his second nomination in three months for the Etihad Player of the Month award. His versatility and energy on the pitch have been instrumental in City’s return to winning ways after consecutive defeats in late September. Foden’s contributions were pivotal in City’s four victories during the past month, including a notable performance in the win over RB Leipzig. He not only scored the opening goal in that match but also played the full 90 minutes in wins against Brighton and Manchester United. Foden’s impact in the Manchester derby, where he scored the final goal, further cements his credentials.
