EPL player of the month: Taiwo Awoniyi leads nominees

Nigeria international and Nothingham Forest forward Taiwo Awoniyi has been nominated alongside other five players for the August Premier League Player of the Month award.

Awoniyi who will be in action against Sao Tome and Principe in the AFCON qualifier on Sunday, has scored three goals in four games and within a total of 184 minutes of action for Forest this season.

This extended his outstanding scoring streak from last season to seven straight Premier League games. He is the third African player to have such a goalscoring run in the Premier League after Mohammed Salah and Sheyi Adebayor.

Awoniyi is competing with West Ham’s Jarod Bowen, Tottenham Hotspur’s James Maddison, Manchester City’s Rodri, Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo, and Brighton’s Kaoru Mitoma for the award.
