Michail Antonio: West Ham forward wins Premier League Player of the Month award for August | Football News


West Ham forward Michail Antonio has been named as the Premier League Player of the Month for August after an impressive start to the domestic campaign.

The 31-year-old has scored four goals in the Hammers’ opening three top-flight games, including a brace in his side’s 4-1 win over Leicester which saw Antonio become the club’s all-time Premier League record goalscorer.

He scored his 50th Premier League goal for West Ham the following weekend in the 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace.

Ex-West Ham striker Marlon Harewood believes Antonio is ‘unplayable at the moment’ and has picked up his form from where he left off last season

Antonio’s fine start to the season has coincided with West Ham’s continued run of impressive results, with David Moyes’ side second in the table and unbeaten in the league so far this season after they secured Europa League qualification last term.

Jamaica international Antonio played a pivotal role in that campaign, scoring 10 goals in 26 Premier League games and he has carried that form into the new season.

He beat off competition from team-mate Said Benrahma, Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso, Eric Dier of Tottenham, Demarai Gray at Everton and Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood to win the monthly accolade.

West Ham travel to Southampton on Saturday as the Premier League gets back underway following the international break.
