Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling and Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford are among the nominees for April’s Premier League Player of the Month award.
Sterling was directly involved in six goals during the period in question, more than any of the other nominees, while the Blues stopper kept three clean sheets.
The two England internationals are up against Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen, Jake Livermore of West Bromwich Albion, Manchester United star Paul Pogba, and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha for the gong.
Meanwhile, Everton manager Sam Allardyce and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho lead the nominations for April’s Manager of the Month.
Last month, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah picked up the gong for Player of the Month in March.
