Julian Alvarez nominated for Premier League’s September awards



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have one nomination for the Premier League’s monthly awards following the conclusion of September in the English top-flight.

While September saw Manchester City’s 100 per cent winning start to the new Premier League season come to an end, their results in top-flight fixtures were largely positive with a further three wins added to their haul so far this campaign.

A 5-1 win over Marco Silva’s Fulham got the month underway in a contest marred by VAR controversy, while that was then followed up by a 1-3 comeback victory over West Ham at the London Stadium featuring Jeremy Doku’s first goal for the club.

Following an outing in the Champions League, Manchester City then recorded a 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest. However, it would be this game that would ultimately cause a major hiccup in subsequent contests as Rodri received a straight red card for ‘violent conduct’.

As such, City lost their subsequent three domestic fixtures included their final Premier League tie of the month against Wolves, in a 2-1 defeat at Molineux as Matheus Nunes made his first return to the Midlands club.

Premier League Player of the Month, September

Despite not being able to maintain their winning run, Julian Alvarez has seen his contributions acknowledge by the Premier League as the Argentine is put forward for the division’s Player of the Month award.

Last year’s FIFA World Cup winner opened the scoring in the 5-1 rout over Fulham at the start of last month, before adding to his tally with a sublime then-equaliser against Wolverhampton Wanderers from a direct free-kick.

Julian Alvarez is joined on the list of nominations by West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, Wolves’ Pedro Neto, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son, Newcastle’s Kieran Trippier, and Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins.
