Having joined the Club from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, the Norwegian international has enjoyed a sensational start to life at the Etihad and scored nine goals in August alone.
The 22-year-old claimed a brace of goals on his debut, helping City secure a 2-0 win at West Ham on the opening day of the season.
He then struck again in our 3-3 draw at Newcastle before recording back-to-back hat-tricks in our Etihad victories against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.
Erling fended off the challenge of fellow nominees Pascal Gross, Gabriel Jesus, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Martin Odegaard, Nick Pope, Rodrigo Moreno and Wilfried Zaha to claim the prize.
Haaland 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.”
Congratulations to Erling on his award.
