2 September 2019

Teemu Pukki has been named the PFA Premier League Player of the Month for August.

Pukki has made a blistering start to life in the English top flight, scoring five goal and assisting one in his opening four games.

He scored City's only goal in the opening day defeat to Liverpool and followed that with a hat-trick in the 3-1 victory over Newcastle United.

Another goal followed in the defeat against Chelsea, taking his tally to five. He was the top scorer in the league for the majority of August, only for Sergio Aguero to overtake him at the weekend.

Pukki beat Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Ashley Barnes (Burnley), Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling (both Manchester City) to the award.
