Eight players were shortlisted for October's EA SPORTS Player of the Month award.
Fans voted for their favourite from the nominees below on the EA SPORTS website before 18:00 GMT on Monday 9 November.
The votes from the public were combined with those of the 20 club captains and a panel of football experts to decide the winner.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers captain led by example as he helped his side register clean sheets in wins over Fulham, Leeds United and Crystal Palace, as well as a draw with Newcastle United, to stay unbeaten during the month.
The midfielder was outstanding in Aston Villa’s sensational 7-2 victory over champions Liverpool, scoring two goals and providing three assists, and also impressed in a win at Leicester.
A double in Tottenham Hotspur's excellent 6-1 win at Manchester United was followed by another two goals against West Ham United. He also set up goals in all three October appearances to move on to eight assists for the season, double the total of anyone else.
The South Korean scored in all three matches, including the decisive goal in the 1-0 success at Burnley, to hold a joint-lead in the race for the Golden Boot race with eight goals.
A commanding presence at the back, Chelsea did not concede a single goal in the three matches that their 36-year-old summer signing played.
