Joe Hart’s excellent start to the season continues with the news that Blues fans have named him as their Etihad Player of the Month for August.

Now first choice for club and country, Joe was the overwhelming winner, polling three-quarters for the votes cast via MCFC.co.uk.

Having returned to the fold after a successful loan spell with Birmingham City, Joe immediately made his mark with an outstanding performance in the first game of the season at White Hart Lane. Darren Bent’s last-minute penalty at the Stadium of Light is the only time the 23-year-old has been beaten so far this season.

Everyone who voted went into the hat for a draw to present the winning player with his award, and it’s Deanna Williams who will meet Joe in front of the Citytv cameras at Carrington once he returns from international duty.
