The first month of the 2018-2019 Premier League season has concluded, which means the nominees for Player of the Month for August have been announced:
BREAKING: Premier League Player of the Month for August: Marcos Alonso, Neil Etheridge, Sadio Mane, Benjamin Mendy, Lucas Moura, Roberto Pereyra, Virgil Van Dijk #SSN— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) August 31, 2018
Sadio Mané and Lucas Moura head the list after scoring three goals apiece for their respective clubs, while also sporting undefeated records in the Premier League. Mané coincidentally earned the first ever POTM last August, after scoring in all three of his matches for Liverpool.
It will be interesting to see who wins the first PL POTM this year, as FIFA fans will be flocking to try to get that player's card when FIFA 19 Ultimate Team comes out later this month. The voting process has officially started, so be sure to get in your vote for your favorite player.
