SAINTS skipper James Ward-Prowse has been nominated for the Premier League player of the month award.

The midfielder was in scintillating form in November. He kicked off the month by netting two sensational free-kicks and providing an assist in the 4-3 win over Aston Villa.

And he ended the month in similar fashion, setting up a goal before scoring with a free-kick goal against Manchester United at St Mary's.

Ward-Prowse is part of a six-man shortlist for the award.

Among those nominated are fellow England internationals Ben Chilwell (Chelsea) and Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) and former Saint Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Tottenham).

Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham) and Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) round off the list.

You can vote for Ward-Prowse via the EA SPORTS website before 6pm on Monday.

Votes from the public will be combined with those of 20 club captains and a panel of football experts to decide the winner.
