Michail Antonio has been voted the Premier League’s Player of the Month for August.

The West Ham striker has scored four times already in the league, in the process becoming the London club’s leading all-time Premier League scorer.

“It’s amazing, to be fair!” Antonio said. “I go out and do my job and to get the gratitude and awards for doing it is amazing.

“August was just another month, you know! I saw that I was quite close to becoming the record holder and I’ve been going for it and now I want to get as far ahead as possible so nobody can catch me!”

Nuno Espirito Santo was named Manager of the Month after an unbeaten start to the season at Tottenham Hotspur.
