NICK Pope has been nominated for the Professional Footballers' Association's Premier League player of the month award for October.

The Clarets goalkeeper was revealed as one of six nominees for the official Premier League award this morning, and now he has added to that by being included in the shortlist for the PFA award.

Again the 25-year-old faces competition from five rivals, with Man City pair Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane nominated with Arsenal duo Nacho Monreal and Alexis Sanchez and Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha.

Lancashire Telegraph:

The PFA award, sponsored by Bristol Street Motors, is decided entirely by public votes and you can cast your vote below.

Pope was influential in Burnley claiming two wins and a drawn from their three Premier League games in October, keeping clean sheets in 1-0 wins over Everton and Newcastle.

He made 21 saves in those four league outings and also claimed eight high balls, a Premier League high for the month, putting his 6ft 3ins frame to good use.
