Voting is now open for the February Etihad Player of the Month with five possible choices for the prestigious club award.
Here are this month's nominees:
James Milner: Another solid month for a player who is having an increasingly impressive season. Bagged the man-of-the-match honours against Chelsea, was effective against Leeds and laid on Edin Dzeko’s tap in against Liverpool. Only a sub versus Southampton but tried his best to turn the tide.
Sergio Aguero: Three goals and one assist for Sergio – two if you include the fact he won and scored the penalty against Leeds – during a productive month. His spectacular goal against Liverpool will take some beating this season and he also laid a goal for Carlos Tevez on a plate in the 4-0 Leeds win. Definitely a contender!
David Silva: What would the orchestra be without its conductor? Silva was involved in almost every goal City scored during February, directly assisting in strikes against Liverpool, Leeds and Chelsea (two) and playing an integral part in EIGHT of the Blues’ nine goals score. Incredible – even by the magician’s standards!
Pablo Zabaleta: Can the stand-in skipper make it three Etihad Player of the Month awards in a row? Zaba was one of the few players who escaped criticism against Southampton and laid on Dzeko’s goal, too and was his usual dependable self in the draw with Liverpool and wins over Leeds and Chelsea during which the Blues recorded successive clean sheets.
Gael Clichy: The French international’s contribution cannot be underestimated for the Blues and but his efforts are fully appreciated by both his team-mates and the City fans. Calm under intense pressure and often sprinting around the pitch as fresh as a daisy in the latter stages of games, can Clichy secure a first award?
If you select the eventual Player of the Month, you will automatically be entered into a prize draw with the winner presenting the award in person at Carrington (UK entrants only).
One overseas voter will receive a personal video message from the February winner, too. Voting closes noon, Monday 4 March - register your choice now!
