Riyad Mahrez has been nominated for the Manchester City Player of the Month award for September.

The 28-year-old Algeria international produced impressive performances last month to help City to second spot in the league table and top Champions League Group C.

The winger started the month by opening his goal account this season in their 3-0 victory against Shakhtar Donetsk.

The forward was also on target in City’s 8-0 thrashing of Watford and was again at his best in last Saturday’s Premier League win against Everton, scoring his third goal of the season.

On the back of the intriguing showings, the former Leicester City star has been shortlisted for the best player in the month under review.
