Robert Lewandowski

SHARPSHOOTER - Lewa knows how to find the back of the net

Barca's new star forward continues to keep up his phenomenal goalscoring record, adding another four to his tally during five games in October so far.

On top of that, he has also provided two assists, although one did come in the side's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid.

Aside from that, it was a pretty perfect month for the Catalan club, winning the other four games without conceding.

Federico Valverde

DOUBLING DOWN - Valverde could pick up the POTM award for the second time

Federico Valverde has been sensational for Real Madrid so far this season, which has already resulted in a Team of the Week and Player of the Month card (let's not forget his Road to the Knockouts card either - which will be upgraded soon).

He scored three in three in Madrid's most recent games, with the side winning four and drawing once in October.

The one time they dropped points was also the only game that Valverde didn't start - coincidence?!

Antoine Griezmann

GRIEZ UNLEASHED - Griezmann's play time is no longer restricted

With Antoine Griezmann's bizarre contract situation now resolved, he has started four of the five games in October, contributing in each of them.

Atletico Madrid won four and drew one, climbing up to third in the table.

Griezmann scored three and assisted twice, with all his involvements proving vital.

Sergio Leon

BIG BOOST - Sergio Leon could be handed a massive upgrade if he wins

Sergio Leon hit a hot patch of form in October, which helped his Real Valladolid side escape the relegation zone, and are now sitting mid-table.

They managed three wins, a draw and a loss, with the striker netting five goals.

All of these came in wins, including a couple of braces, with his goals proving decisive in two of the games.

CLINGING ON - Joselu has come to the rescue for Espanyol many times

Espanyol isn't having the best of seasons, but it would be a whole lot worse if Joselu hadn't been around.

He scored four times in five matches, securing points for the side in each.

With his goals, they managed to claim six points, without them that would have been halved.

Brais Mendez

HOT PATCH - Brais Mendez had a goal involvement streak of six games in a row

Brais Mendez has kept improving as the season goes on, helping Real Sociedad to fourth in the table.

He managed two goals and two assists spread across all four of their wins in October, and like with Joselu, his contributions mean they have double the points that they could have.

NOT A CHANCE - We would be incredibly surprised is Isi claims the POTM award

Isi hasn't been as prolific as others on the shortlist, and really, it would be amazing if he picked up the award.

He has a goal and two assists to his name in October, with his Rayo Vallecano side managing two wins, two draws and a loss.

September Winner

Real Madrid's Federico Valverde picked up September's La Liga Player of the Month award with a very popular 86 OVR card.

There is still time to bring the Uruguayan to your side, with the SBC expiring on Sunday, 13 November.
