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

Mahrez had 70 per cent of the total votes to fend off competition from teammates Kevin De Bruyne and Rodrigo.

The Algeria international was in stellar form for Manchester City last month, scoring three goals and laying two assists in five appearances.

Against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League and in a Premier League fixture against Watford, Mahrez grabbed a goal and an assist. He also helped the Citizens overcome Everton in the league with a goal backed by his man-of-the-match display.

After an underwhelming debut campaign at Etihad Stadium, the 28-year-old is gradually establishing himself as a key part of Pep Guardiola's squad.

The Algeria winger will be looking to continue his fine form when Manchester City visit Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park for Saturday's Premier League fixture.
