FUT 21 October - POTM contenders so far

October - POTM contenders so far

We have one game week left in the month of October which can only mean one thing, the next player of the month award is only a couple of weeks away! With the international fixtures this month, we will only see 3 matches per team, which only emphasises the importance of consistently strong performances. So with just the games on the weekend left, who is currently leading this race?

All match ratings used are taken directly from whoscored.

The Month So Far

Harry Kane

14th October 207
Tottenham 1 - 0 Bournemouth
0 Goals, 0 Assists, 6.8 Rating

22nd October 2017
Tottenham 4 - 1 Liverpool
2 Goals, 1 Assist, 9.4 Rating

28th October 2017
Manchester United ? - ? Tottenham

With a less than impressive performance against Bournemouth Kane really has a lot left to achieve in his final game against Manchester United. After a world class showing against Liverpool, a repeat performance against another top club could see him edge out the competition who have a much easier fixture list. This being said, it really needs to be world class with a few goals thrown in for good measure.

Kevin De Bruyne

14th October 2017
Manchester City 7 - 2 Stoke
0 Goals, 2 Assists, 8.7 Rating

21st October 2017
Manchester City 3 - 0 Burnley
0 Goals, 1 Assist, 8.4 Rating

28th October 2017
West Brom ? - ? Manchester City

Manchester City have been an unstoppable force recently, and if the pace continues we could see all kinds of goal scoring records demolished. This being said, it isn't always the player who taps the ball into the net who deserves the credit. De Bruyne has been fundamental to the success, his vision and ability to read the game seems to improve in each match. The only thing he lacks this month is Goals to his name, a goal or a couple of assists again in this final match could see him edge out the competition.

Leroy Sane

14th October 2017
Manchester City 7 - 2 Stoke
1 Goal, 1 Assist, 8.9 Rating

21st October 2017
Manchester City 3 - 0 Burnley
1 Goal, 1 Assist, 8.6 Rating

28th October 2017
West Brom ? - ? Manchester City

It has been far from smooth sailing for the Manchester City players when it comes to making the starting lineup. With a number of wide players to choose from, alongside the option of two striker setups or a larger midfield, there is no guarantees as it stands. This month however Sane has put forward a strong argument as to why he should be included, and with 2 goals and 2 assists so far, a starting spot against West Brom may be all he needs to wrap up this player of the month award too.

Conclusion
