Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has been voted the PFA Vertu Motors Premier League Fans' Player of the Month for August.

The Norway international enjoyed a superb debut month in the Premier League, racking up nine goals and one assist.

Haaland opened August with a match-winning brace away at West Ham United, punishing the Hammers with his searing pace and precise finishing.

He followed that up with an assist in a rare quiet game against Bournemouth and a vital goal in Man City's 3-3 comeback draw at Newcastle before exploding into life at the end of August.

With his side trailing 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace, Haaland scored his first Premier League hat-trick to secure a 4-2 victory against the Eagles.

The 22-year-old followed that up with another hat-trick days later, putting Nottingham Forest to the sword in a 6-0 thrashing.

With six players nominated for the award, Haaland won with a seismic 43% of the vote. Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic finished in second with 18% and Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace came third with 12%.

Brighton's Pascal Gross (11%) and Arsenal duo Gabriel Jesus (11%) and Martin Odegaard (5%) were also nominated.
