Douglas Luiz​ (Aston Villa)​
P3 W2 D1 L0​ G2 A1​
The Brazilian midfielder was a key figure as Aston Villa took seven points from three matches. He struck twice in a 4-1 win over West Ham, becoming the first Villa player to score in six straight Premier League home matches, and he then set up the opening goal in the 3-1 win over Luton Town.

Bryan Mbeumo​ (Brentford)​
P4 W2 D1 L1​ G2 A2​
Mbeumo produced a goal and an assist in a 3-0 win over Burnley, and then did the same in a 2-0 victory at Chelsea, helping Brentford become the first Premier League team to win their first three trips to Stamford Bridge.

Pedro Neto​ (Wolves)​
P3 W1 D2 L0​ G0 A3
Neto set up a goal in all three of Wolves' October matches, taking his tally to a league-leading seven assists this season. His creativity helped Wolves go unbeaten during the month, beating AFC Bournemouth 2-1 and drawing with Villa and Newcastle.

Declan Rice​ (Arsenal)​
P3 W2 D1 L0​ G1 A1​
A linchpin in Arsenal's midfield, the summer signing played a key role in the 1-0 win over Manchester City, while his long-range goal at Chelsea was the catalyst for a comeback from 2-0 down. He then set up the opener in the 5-0 triumph against Sheffield United.  

Cristian Romero​ (Spurs​)
P3 W3 D0 L0​ G0 A0 CS2​
Romero led the way as the league leaders defended a 1-0 lead at Luton with 10 men, before contributing to another clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Fulham. He made 141 passes in the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, the most on record by a Spurs player in a Premier League match.

Mohamed Salah​ (Liverpool)​
P3 W2 D1 L0​ G5 A0​
Salah is nominated for a second month in a row after scoring in all three of his matches, with five goals in total. He scored both Liverpool goals in a 2-2 draw with Brighton, and in the 2-0 win over Everton, before netting in the 3-0 success against Nottingham Forest
