Pukki scored five Premier League goals in four appearances during August, including a hat-trick in a handsome win for Norwich over Newcastle.
The former Celtic and Brondby forward also netted against Liverpool and Chelsea and became only the 10th player to score in each of his first three Premier League appearances.
Pukki beat a stellar shortlist that featured Manchester City trio Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne, as well as Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino and Burnley’s Ashley Barnes.
“I feel really honoured,” the Finn told PremierLeague.com.
Pukki is tasked with getting on the scoresheet again this weekend as Norwich host reigning champions Manchester City at Carrow Road. His record already this season, after also finishing 2018/19 as the top scorer in the Championship, will ensure he has no fear.
