New Tottenham signing James Maddison has rounded off an impressive first month as a Spurs player by being named the Premier League player of the month for August.
Maddison finished top ahead of Super Eagles and Nottingham Forest striker, Taiwo Awoniyi.
Awoniyi scored in each of Nottingham Forest’s first three matches in August, extending his overall scoring streak dating back to last season to seven consecutive Premier League matches.
He is now only the third African player to score in seven consecutive matches after Mohamed Salah and Emmanuel Adebayor.
Maddison is the first Tottenham player to win the award since Harry Kane in March 2022, and he fended off competition from Taiwo Awoniyi, Jarod Bowen (West Ham), Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford), Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton) and Rodri (Manchester City) to win the award.
