The La Liga season is back, and now we have our first bunch of contenders for the first player of the month award of the season.

As was the case in FIFA 20, you'll be able to vote for your winner from the list of nominees below.

Here is your shortlist in full.

Luis Suarez

Suárez 1

He's not been in Madrid long, but he's started the campaign like a house on fire!

The Uruguayan has already picked up two goals and an assist for his new club and, as the highest-rated of this month nominees, he's sure to be amongst the favourites for the award.

Iago Aspas

Aspas

A familiar face when it comes to goals in La Liga, the Celta Vigo striker has been in and amongst them in September.

Three goals in as many games puts Aspas amongst the frontrunners early in the hunt for the Golden Boot.

Sergio Canales

An ever present in the Spanish top flight, the Real Betis winger has also enjoyed a fast start to the season.

He's picked up two assists for his side, who sit in third place in the standings through their opening four games.

Ansu Fati

Fati

Barcelona have some building to do this season after capitulating at the end of the last, but youngster Ansu Fati is still in and among the headlines.

The Catalonian side have only played one game this season, but Fati grabbed two goals on the way to an opening day three points.

Luis Milla

Luis Milla 1

The final name in the running for the first award of the season is Granada defensive midfielder, Luis Milla.

He's not known for his goalscoring attributes, but he helped himself to one in the opening day win over Athletic Bilbao, as his side sit fourth early in the La Liga season.
