Haaland wins PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award

Haaland wins PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award
Erling Haaland has been named PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month for August.

Having already been named PFA Premier League Player of the Month last week, the Norwegian has now added to his individual haul following a public vote.

Haaland fended off competition from Fulham’s Aleksandr Mitrovic, Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, Brighton’s Pascal Gross as well as Arsenal duo Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard to claim his latest accolade.

The Norwegian enjoyed a phenomenal start to life in the Premier League, grabbing nine goals in just five appearances for City across the month.

That strike rate was a record in the English top flight, while he also become the fastest player to score two hat-tricks in the competition’s history, beating previous holder Demba Ba by 16 matches.

Grabbing a brace on his Premier League debut against West Ham, Haaland laid on Ilkay Gundogan for our first in a 4-0 win over Bournemouth the following week.

He was back among the goals in our 2-2 draw away to Newcastle United, before securing back-to-back trebles against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

And the 22-year-old has gone on to prove that his incredible start is far more than a flash in the pan, adding to his personal tally with further strikes against Aston Villa and Wolves in his most recent Premier League outings.

He is the competition’s leading scorer with 11 goals in just seven appearances, five clear of nearest rivals Harry Kane and Mitrovic.

Congratulations to Erling on his latest award.
