David Luiz and Suarez lead shortlist

Two January signings head the field in the voting for this month's ESPN PFA Fans Player of the Month.

• VOTE NOW for the March winner

Chelsea defender David Luiz has been a revelation since moving to Stamford Bridge from Benfica, and this month he has again shown he is a dangerous customer at the other end of the pitch by getting involved in the attack. He netted the first goal in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Manchester City.

Luis Suarez has proved to be a hit among the Liverpool fans after signing for the club from Ajax Amsterdam. The prolific Uruguayan again showed his neat footwork to create the opening for himself against Sunderland, and he went on to blast home the second goal in a 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light.

Even better has been fellow Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt, who scored his first-ever hat-trick for the club in the 3-1 win over Manchester United and added a further goal from the penalty spot at Sunderland.

Arsenal teenager Jack Wilshere has come on leaps and bounds this season and England coach Fabio Capello has revealed he is one of the first names on his team-sheet. He's put in another good shift this month, despite the Gunners' form dropping off.

Our next contender has been transformed from bench warmer to star turn in recent weeks. Manchester United's Javier Hernandez is now first choice alongside Wayne Rooney, meaning the Premier League's top scorer, Dimitar Berbatov, has had to be content with a place among the substitutes. He has scored against Liverpool this month as well as grabbing both goals in the 2-1 Champions League win over Marseille.

Last but not least we have West Ham United's industrious midfielder Scott Parker who, along with Thomas Hitzlsperger, has proved to be the driving force behind the club's improved form. The Hammers picked up four points in March, and did not concede a single goal.

Each month, the Professional Football Association (PFA), in association with ESPN gives Premier League fans the opportunity to vote for their player of the month.
