Haaland voted Etihad Player of the Month

Erling Haaland has been voted the Etihad Player of the Month for August.

Our Norwegian striker saw off the challenge of team-mates Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne to claim the award.

Having joined the Club from Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer, Haaland has made a sensational start to his City career.

After bagging a brace on his Premier League debut, helping us secure a 2-0 opening day win at West Ham, the 22-year-old maintained that superb form throughout the rest of August.


He was on target again in our thrilling 3-3 draw away at Newcastle United and then followed that up by registering magnificent back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

The former helped us stage a storming comeback from 2-0 down to overcome the Eagles 4-2 at the Etihad while the latter treble came as Pep Guardiola’s side downed Nottingham Forest 6-0.

The feat saw the Norwegian score the largest number of Premier League goals in August and also become the quickest individual to score two Premier League hat-tricks, breaking the previous record by 14 games.

Aside from his staggering goal return, Haaland also made a big impact with his impressive all-round prowess and incisive link-up play with his City colleagues.

Congratulations to Erling and a big thank you to everyone who took part in the poll.
