City number one Tim Krul and captain Grant Hanley have retained their places in the Team of the Week, having also been named in the divisional team following the 1-0 home win over Swansea prior to the international break.

The duo are joined by Lukas Rupp, Emi Buendia and Teemu Pukki into making it into one of the weekly divisional teams so far this season, which are decided by the EFL with assistance from the ratings of statistics website

Krul was nominated for the Championship Player of the Month award for October, alongside Daniel Farke being nominated for Manager of the Month, although both missed out on the awards.
