Goal of the month

Saka's Forest strike tops Goal of Month poll

Bukayo Saka scores against Nottingham Forest

Bukayo Saka's superb strike against Nottingham Forest has been voted as our Goal of the Month for August by our supporters.

The attacker's thumping effort into the top corner was a runaway winner, amassing a whopping 82 per cent of the votes cast to top our poll and become our first winner of the monthly award.

Bukayo's strike, which is also a contender for the Premier League's August award, came in the 32nd minute of our 2-1 win against the Reds in our opening league game of the campaign.

In what proved to be the winning goal, William Saliba won the ball back as Forest tried to play their way out of trouble after clearing a corner. The Frenchman played a one-two with Thomas Partey before laying the ball off to our attacker, who took a touch to nudge the ball into a yard of space and hold off the attention of Orel Mangala.

Then Bukayo wrapped his left foot around the ball from the edge of the area, and unleashed a fierce shot that flew into the top corner past the outstretched hands of former teammate Matt Turner, to start his season with a bang.
