Eight players have been nominated for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for September.
The nominees were decided by the Premier League Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches picked the standout performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches during September.
The 21-year-old midfielder claimed an assist in Everton's 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers before scoring twice in September as the PL2 Division 1 champions picked up seven points from three matches.
Shortlisted for the award for the second month in a row, the 18-year-old midfielder helped Manchester United win in both his matches. He scored in a 2-0 victory over Norwich City and played in the 1-0 win over Fulham.
The son of former England forward David Hirst, the 20-year-old scored both goals in Leicester's 2-2 draw with Chelsea. The forward also impressed in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool and their 2-1 defeat at Arsenal.
The 17-year-old produced three assists and scored twice in three Division 2 matches, in which Reading picked up six points. The midfielder's September form was rewarded with a substitute first-team appearance in the Championship.
The midfielder scored eight goals in five appearances last month. Six came in PL2, striking a brace in each of the Division 2 leaders' three wins, as well as getting two assists. The 20-year-old also helped West Ham United beat Valencia in the Premier League International Cup and his fourth September double inspired a 5-4 EFL Trophy success at Newport County.
