Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award for September.

The German international had a fine September and featured in every minute of our Premier League games for September.

Rudiger was a key part of a Chelsea defence that kept two clean sheets in consecutive 3-0 victories over Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur, and conceding just one goal in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City. He also got a goal in the 3-0 win against Tottenham.

Rudiger’s main competitor for the award is the in-form Cristiano Ronaldo who has been in sensational form since he returned to Manchester United.

Other nominees include wing-back João Cancelo from Manchester City, Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle, Mo Salah (Liverpool) and also Ismaïla Sarr of Watford.
