“Another member of the squad who played every minute throughout October, John Obi Mikel put in a number of impressive performances as the Potters recorded four wins from seven,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
“The 33-year-old was a formidable presence in the heart of midfield and used his extensive experience to guide the team, particularly in clashes against Aston Villa and Barnsley. His standing in the squad also saw Michael O’Neill hand the former Nigeria international the captain’s armband for the final four matches of the month.”
Mikel has featured in nine league games for the Potters this season.
Fans have until 5pm on Friday 6th November to cast a vote, with the winner to be announced in due course.
