The next Premier League player of the Month nominees have been announced and fans of the game and league can now start casting their vote for who they want to see crowned as the best playing in February.
Voting for the next Premier League Player of the Month award opened this morning and in the running for February is a healthy mix of players across the league. But mostly from those in the top half because, naturally, this is only aimed at those players truly playing out of their skin.
For February you can vote for one of the following players:
Marcos Alonso (Chelsea), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal), Dominic Calvert Lewin (Everton), Matt Doherty (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Bruno-Fernandes (Manchester United), Nick Pope (Burnley)
The winner of the monthly award will receive a POTM award in-game, complete with a new purple FUT card and significantly improved stats.
The new Player of the Month is normally announced on or around the second Friday of the month, so we imagine we'll find out who has won the February award this time next week, on March 13th.
Here's a bit more info on each player and why they've been nominated for the monthly award in February.
