Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge nominated for Premier League Player of the Month award – Vote here

Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge has been nominated for the Fans’ Premier league Player of the Month award.

The Bluebirds stopper has enjoyed a sensational start to life in the Premier League with two clean sheets and two penalty saves.

Etheridge saved a penalty in Cardiff’s opening day 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth, before denying Newcastle winger Kenedy from scoring a stoppage time penalty winner a week later.

The Philippines international was a stalwart in Neil Warnock’s side last season, playing in 45 of the Bluebirds’ 46-game promotion campaign.

He then became the first ever Philippines international to play in the Premier League when he was chosen to start in front of Alex Smithies on opening day.

The 27-year-old’s smooth transition into Premier League life has seen him take the step up with ease and he looks set to have a big season between sticks for the Bluebirds.

Etheridge is up against hefty competition for the Fans’ Player of the Month award.

Also nominated is Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Benjamin Mendy, Tottenham’s Lucas Moura, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane,¬†and Watford’s Roberto Pereya.
