Manchester United trio Romelu Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Phil Jones are among the nominees for the Premier League Player of the Month while Jose Mourinho is up for the manager’s award for August.

League leaders United have made a perfect start to the season with three wins from three — including wins over West Ham, Swansea and Leicester — keeping three clean sheets and scoring 10 goals.

Chelsea’s £58 million summer signing Alvaro Morata is up for the award after becoming the first Premier League player in history to bag a goal and assist in his opening two games.

Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are also up for the award, as is Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, who has kept three clean sheets for the newly promoted side.
Joining Mourinho, the other Premier League Manager of the Month candidates include Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, David Wagner and West Brom boss Tony Pulis.

Voting for Goal of the Month is also underway, with Charlie Daniels’ thunderous strike for Bournemouth against Manchester City among the nominees.
