With the first month of the Premier League season now in the books, voting is open for August’s Player of the Month.
We have four contenders for the prize for their displays during the month, which saw us beat Manchester City to win the Community Shield and record two wins and a draw from our first three league outings.
Take a look at your options, and then vote below - but be quick as this season, voting is only open for 48 hours before the winner is decided!
Eddie’s excellent form at the start of the season led to a first England call-up, having made it impossible for Gareth Southgate not to select him.
He netted our first Premier League goal of the campaign against Nottingham Forest before winning the penalty that to our victory at Crystal Palace. He then came off the bench against Fulham to get on the scoresheet again to start the season in style.
Hopes were high that Declan would make a quick impact following his summer move from West Ham United, and he hasn’t disappointed in red and white. He was a major factor in our Community Shield success on familiar turf at Wembley and has since played every minute of our Premier League campaign so far.
August’s three matches saw him among our most potential attacking threats against Forest, while he was statistically our best defender against Fulham, displaying his qualities all over the pitch to his new supporters.
Having missed the final few months of last season through injury, William has returned to the heart of our defence with his usual calmness and speed snuffing out numerous attacks. He was especially imperious against Palace, making eight clearances and two interceptions to record his first clean sheet of the campaign.
He even managed to get himself a rare assist for Bukayo Saka’s sensational strike against Forest by winning the ball back on the flank, as he made an unexpected impact at the other end of the field.
Having spent the entirety of last season at right-back, Ben was switched into the centre of our defence for the start of this one, but hasn’t let it faze him one bit.
By the end of the month, only three other players in the whole league had made more passes into the attacking third, as Ben continues to kick-start our attacking moves despite a change of position.
