Opinion: Reason Why Greenwood Will Be The Winner Of the August Player Of The Month Award.

The Football Association of the English Premier League recently revealed six outstanding players who dominated the English top-flight in August and were later nominated for the player of the month award.

Amongst the those who made the list are two West Ham United players (Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma), one Chelsea star player (Marcus Alonso), one Manchester United player (Mason Greenwood), one Tottenham player (Eric Dier), and one Everton player (Demarai Gray).

Mason Greenwood's goalscoring start to the season at Manchester United sees the youngster make up the nominees.

Alonso got Chelsea off to a flying start to the season, opening the scoring with a wonderful free-kick against Crystal Palace on an opening day.

West Ham United duo Michail Antonio, who became the Hammers leading Premier League goalscorer and leads the goalscoring charts for the season.

Everton winger Demarai Gray is also up for the award, having scored one goal in the opening three games.

Tottenham's Eric Dier's defensive performances have been enough to see him nominated.

while Benrahma was also on the scoresheet in both of those games - picking up the man of the match award for his display at St James' Park on the opening weekend.

As for Greenwood, he's shown his keen eye for goal in United's first three fixtures, scoring in all of the Red Devils' games so far. He netted what turned out to be the winner against Leeds on an opening day, the equalizer against Southampton at St Mary's the following week, and another winner this past Sunday - in the 1-0 win over Wolves at Molineux.

Proving equally adept in front of goal with his right or left foot, and able to play anywhere across the frontline.
