The Belgian is one of six players up for the prestigious prize, based on Premier League performances throughout the month.
There were only two matches to judge September's candidates on following the postponement of a round of fixtures after HM Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.
However, it was still time enough for De Bruyne to register three assists and take his tally to six in total (eight all competitions).
He is up against Bournemouth’s Philip Billing (two goals); Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (one goal, one assist); Everton’s Alex Iwobi (one assist); Villa’s Jacob Ramsey (one goal, one assist) and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford (two goals, two assists)!
