Marcus Rashford has been named Premier League Player of the Month for September.
Rashford was only called for duty in two games in the month of September as fixtures were postponed due to the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, he played against Leicester City on 1 September and Arsenal three days later but his exploits in those games were immeasurable.
Manchester United were highly impressive in the two games securing maximum points with Rashford proving key in both encounters.
The Manchester United forward scored two goals and assisted Antony’s opener in the 3-1 victory over Arsenal, having played in Jadon Sancho to score United’s winner at Leicester at the start of the month.
His four goal involvements in September – no PL player managed more during the month – were enough for Rashford to see off competition from the likes of Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
It is the second time Rashford has received the accolade. The first time he received it was in January 2019.
Manchester City”s Erling Haaland won it for the month of August while, Rashford on the other end of Manchester won for September.
Both Haaland and Rashford go head to head in Sunday’s Manchester derby at the Etihad.
