Antonio Conte, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Heung-Min Son and Hugo Lloris have all been nominated for Premier League awards for the month of September.
Firstly, for the second month on the trot, Antonio has been shortlisted for the Barclays Manager of the Month.
After a strong start to the season in August, we enjoyed a 100 per cent record in September under Antonio as we took maximum points in our two outings - home wins over Fulham (2-1) and Leicester (6-2) - and continued our unbeaten start to the campaign.
For the award, our Head Coach faces competition from Bournemouth's Gary O'Neil and Manchester United's Erik ten Hag.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, meanwhile, is up for the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award as his fine form has continued in lilywhite.
First nominated for the award in our colours back in November, 2020, Pierre was involved in two goals in as many matches in our September outings with a goal against Fulham and an assist against Leicester. That adds to his strike against Chelsea in August and his assist in our Champions League clash with Marseille earlier this month.
Also in contention for the prize is AFC Bournemouth's Philip Billing, Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne, Everton's Alex Iwobi, Aston Villa's Jacob Ramsey and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford.
For the Budweiser Goal of the Month, Heung-Min Son has received two nominations.
Both concerning goals scored in his hat-trick against Leicester on Saturday, it is his first and second strikes against the Foxes that have been shortlisted.
First up, his opener against the East Midlands outfit on 72 minutes saw him power towards goal before unleashing a rip-roaring effort with his right foot from 30 yards to break his duck for the campaign. Then, he hit another stunner from almost the same position 12 minutes later with his other foot, curling into the opposite corner of the net.
Also up for the award are two of Ivan Toney's efforts for Brentford against Leeds, Aleksandar Mitrovic's strike against us at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Alexis Mac Allister's free-kick for Brighton against Leicester and Joao Palhinha's goal for Fulham at Nottingham Forest.
And finally, Hugo Lloris, for the second consecutive month, is up for the Castrol Save of the Month.
Having been nominated in August for his fine save to deny Chelsea's Kai Havertz, our number one has also been shortlisted this month after he showed sublime reflexes to keep out Aleksandar Mitrovic's late, late, dipping drive.
For the award, Hugo faces competition from Everton's Jordan Pickford for two saves against Liverpool, Pickford's opposite number that day, Alisson Becker, Crystal Palace's Vincente Guaita and Leicester's Danny Ward, who kept out a Davinson Sanchez header.
