Ivan provided a goal and an assist as we beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at Molineux before setting up our opener in the 3-3 draw against Liverpool. On top of that, no player in the top flight won more aerial duels than Ivan and his 7 key passes in September was the ninth highest figure in the division over the month.

Ivan was named the WhoScored.com Premier League Player of the Month and earned a place in the WhoScored Team of the Month from Europe's top five leagues.

Despite that it was Liverpool's Salah who took the fans' award following his three-goal haul. His first, in a 3-0 win over Leeds United, made him the fifth-fastest player to 100 Premier League goals. He also found the net against Crystal Palace before scoring in the six-goal thriller at the Brentford Community Stadium to end the month.
