Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki has been named as the Premier League’s Player of the Month for August after his record-equalling start to the season.

The Finnish striker became just the second player to score five goals in his first three games of the competition, joining former Fulham forward Pavel Pogrebnyak, who achieved the feat between February and March 2012.
How did Pukki earn Player of the Month? Five things to know…

  • Teemu Pukki has key in Norwich City’s promotion from the Championship last season, scoring 29 goals.
  • The Finland striker has been in strong form already this season, netting five goals in his first three games.

  • His performances saw Pukki on the shortlist to be named Premier League Player of the Month for August.
  • And the 29-year-old won the award, beating Sergio Aguero, Ashley Barnes, Kevin De Bruyne, Roberto Firmino and Raheem Sterling.
