Premier League 2017/18: Top 5 players of the month (August)
We head into the international break after three gruelling weeks of Premier League action which has provided plenty to talk about. Some of the players are still finding their feet in the new season while some others have settled into their new team with ease.
There are quite a few contenders for the monthly Premier League Player of the Month Award this time around. But only the best performer in the month will end up with the prize.
The top 5 players are as follows.
#5 Alvaro Morata
One of the positives for the reigning champions has been the successful adaptation of Alvaro Morata to life in England. Having joined Chelsea for a club record fee of £70 million from Real Madrid, the 24-year-old Spanish striker has quickly silenced his critics.
Morata has scored two, assisted two and created five chances for his teammates in two starts and one substitute appearance.
He was instrumental for Chelsea in their 2-0 win over Everton. He is also forming a good understanding with his compatriot Cesc Fabregas.
It is quite amazing to see how quickly Morata has taken to life at Stamford Bridge keeping in mind the struggles of plenty of players who had moved from Spain to England.
Based on the above facts, Morata is a good contender for the prize.
