David Silva wins Bluemoon Player of the Month award for AugustSpanish playmaker starts season in impressive style

David Silva has been voted as the Bluemoon Player of the Month for August. The mercurial Spaniard won 56% of the vote after an impressive month, which saw City record four straight successive victories against West Brom, Chelsea, Everton and Watford. Silva scored City's opening goal of the season, with a somewhat fortuitous deflection at The Hawthorns.

Fernandinho came second, with 22% of the votes cast. The Brazilian midfielder has started the season well following a disappointing summer with Brazil, and has already netted twice despite being deployed as a holding midfielder essentially. A sublime strike against champions Chelsea was followed by an equally impresive finish against Watford last weekend.

Aleksandar Kolarov was third, with 7% of the vote. The Serbian full-back looked as though he may have been on his way out of The Etihad over the summer, but Kolarov appears rejuvenated and has formed a promising partnership with Raheem Sterling on City's left flank. The pair linked up for Kolarov's first goal of the season, in the 2-0 victory against Everton.
