Super Eagles and Watford striker Odion Ighalo has been nominated for September’s Barclay Premier League Player of the Month Award.

The Nigerian has been in blistering form for the Hornets scoring three goals in the three matches last month, including a brace in their 2-1 win at Newcastle United.

Ighalo scored a memorable goal against Swansea City at the Vicarage Road, which helped his team secure their first win of the League season.

Other nominees are Manchester United duo of Anthony Martial and Danny Blind, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, Dimitri Payet of Westham United and Tottenham Hotspur’s goalkeeper Hugo Iloris. The winner will be announced on Friday.
