Early in August, the new Spanish league season began, and we have already experienced three action-packed match days. Now that it's September, it's time to present the August Player of the Month award.
La Liga's Player of the Month Award
There have been a number of high-profile departures from La Liga, including Lionel Messi, but the other players have stepped up their game, and the level of competition has remained same. Here are some of the players who stood out among those who excelled in La Liga during the month of August:
1. Correa Angel
Correa is undoubtedly Atletico Madrid's golden kid at the moment, having arguably carried the team's offensive since the start of the season.
Correa has three goals and one assist in three heated La Liga games. As a result, he is currently one of the league's most decisive attacking players. Atletico Madrid is now tied for first place in La Liga, and Correa's effect has been significant.
2. Benzema Karim
With Lionel Messi's departure, many supporters predicted that this season would be Karim Benzema's, and he has had a strong start thus far. In the first three La Liga games of the season, Benzema has scored twice and supplied three assists. Real Madrid is presently tied for first place in the league, and Benzema has been their finest attacking player so far this season. It's not unreasonable to believe he deserves a shot at the player of the month honor.
3. Depay Memphis
You have to feel bad for Depay, who recently lost two key teammates in the transfer window (Griezmann and Messi). Depay will have a lot more on his plate this season, and he's already off to a good start.
Depay has two goals and two assists in three La Liga games this season. Barcelona is also in first place in the league, and he has played a key role in that.
4. Eric Lamela
Eric Lamela is Sevilla's new golden kid, having joined from Tottenham in the summer transfer window. Lamela has three goals in three La Liga games this season, including the game-winning goal two games ago.
Lamela is presently tied for the league's leading scorer with Vinicius, Correa, and Soler. Sevilla fans will undoubtedly hope that his form continues, since he might be a key player for them.
