Michail Antonio wins award

Now, in not at all surprising news, Antonio has been rewarded for his fine start to the campaign.

As revealed on Friday, the 31-year-old has been named as the Premier League Player of the Month for August.

Antonio beat out some serious competition, topping a six-man shortlist that also included Marcos Alonso, Said Benrahma, Eric Dier, Demarai Gray and Mason Greenwood.

After winning the award, Antonio stated:

“It’s amazing, to be fair. I go out and do my job and to get the gratitude and awards for doing it is amazing.

“August was just another month, you know! To be fair, it’s amazing. I saw that I was quite close to becoming the record holder and I’ve been going for it and now I want to get as far ahead as possible so nobody can catch me!”
