Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho and Bacary Sagna are the Etihad Player of the Month nominees for January.
The trio are up for the award voted for by supporters after impressing last month and by casting your vote, you could get to present the winner in person at the CFA.
Here's why each player has been nominated...
With seven goals from the seven games he played during January, it's fair to say Kun will start as red-hot favourite to land the Etihad prize.
The Argentine was back to his very best and was inspirational in helping the Blues maintain their bid to win silverware on four fronts.
His header against Watford secured three precious points and he scored a terrific individual goal in the 3-0 FA Cup victory over Norwich.
He then scored twice in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace and bagged another brace in the 2-2 draw away to West Ham. Lastly, his spectacular header against Everton ensured the Blues progressed to Wembley at the expense of Everton to cap a memorable month.
Iheanacho made just three starts during January but he still managed to bag four goals.
After a man-of-the-match display and goal against Norwich in the FA Cup, Kelechi then assisted one of Aguero's goals in the 4-0 win over Palace before again helping create a goal for Kun in the 2-2 draw with West Ham.
The teenager then stole the headlines in the 4-0 win away to Aston Villa, scoring a superb hat-trick and also made a goal for Raheem Sterling.
Four goals and three assists - not a bad return!
Sagna may not be able to claim a haul of goals - his assist did help City take three points at Watford - but he has enjoyed yet another solid month in the Blues' defence.
The former Arsenal man also showed his versatility as he moved to centre back against Aston Villa and gave a polished performance.
Maybe the outsider of the three but Sagna's contribution will not have gone unnoticed by City fans.
Voting closes at noon on Monday, 8 February.
