Shay Given joined Manchester City for £7 million only 10 months ago but it’s as if the brilliant bargain goalkeeper has been with us for years such is our faith in him…

Seamus has come in a close second repeatedly in our MOTM polls throughout the first months of the season but his impact upon the result at Birmingham was without question.

Meanwhile, once again, Wayne Bridge’s tireless efforts have not gone un-noticed.

1. Shay Given 62%
3. Wayne Bridge 10%
8. Shaun Wright-Phillips 4%
5. Pablo Zabaleta 4%
32. Carlos Tevez 4%
7. Stephen Ireland 2%
17. Martin Petrov 2%
33. Vincent Kompany 2%
19. Joleon Lescott 2%
34. Nigel De Jong 2%
18. Gareth Barry 2%
39. Craig Bellamy 2%
14. Roque Santa Cruz 2%
