Swansea City duo among August Player of the Month nominees

The six nominees for August's Premier League Player of the Month are Bafetimbi Gomis, Andre Ayew, Riyad Mahrez, Aleksandar Kolarov, David Silva and Chris Smalling.

The six players nominated for the first Premier League Player of the Month award this season have been revealed and two from unbeaten Swansea City feature.

Striker Bafetimbi Gomis scored four goals in four games to be joint-top scorer, and he is joined by new signing Andre Ayew, who netted Swansea's other three and also set up one of Gomis's strikes.

Gomis is level with Riyad Mahrez at the top of the scoring chart and the Leicester City winger is also nominated for the award.

Like Swansea, Manchester City have two players in the shortlist in Aleksandar Kolarov and David Silva. Kolarov helped the Citizens keep four straight clean sheets, while Silva provided four assists in the leaders' four straight wins.

Completing the shortlist is Manchester United defender Chris Smalling, who played all 360 minutes last month and led the Red Devils to three clean sheets in four games.

The winner will be announced tomorrow.
