Michail Antonio named Premier League Player of the Month for August

The 31-year-old continued his good form in the next match, which he played at home against Leicester City.

He took advantage of Caglar Soyuncu's error to send up Benrahma for a tap-in goal before scoring two goals himself in a 4-2 triumph.


He surpassed club great Paolo Di Canio to become the Hammers' all-time leading scorer in the Premier League.


In the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace, he put in another strong performance to close up the month.


In the second half, he combined well to set up Pablo Fornals for the opener and finished at the near post with his weaker left foot.


This brought his total for the month to four goals and three assists, making him the Premier League's top scorer.


Antonio has received the Player of the Month title for the second time. In July 2020, he scored eight goals in seven games for the first time.


As a result, he becomes the first West Ham player to win the award multiple times.
