Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, has been chosen as the August Premier League Player of the Month.
The Norwegian international has had a phenomenal start to life at the Etihad after joining the Club from Borussia Dortmund in the summer. He scored nine goals in August alone.
The 22-year-old scored twice on his debut for City, which helped them defeat West Ham 2-0 on the first day of the new campaign.
Before scoring back-to-back hat-tricks in Etihad triumphs over Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest, he struck again in a 3-3 draw at Newcastle.
Pascal Gross, Gabriel Jesus, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Martin Odegaard, Nick Pope, Rodrigo Moreno, and Wilfried Zaha, were also nominated but couldn’t stop Erling Haaland from winning.
The Norwegian forward said: “I am delighted to win this award for the first time – it was an incredible start of the season for the team and I am grateful to everyone who voted.
“We all wanted to hit the ground running this season, so winning four games out of five was a great start for us in what is the most challenging competition in the world. I am happy to have played my part by scoring goals.
“What’s important is the result and to help the team. Hopefully, I can continue to support the team, make our fans happy with our performances and carry on our strong start to the season.”
