Rashford beats De Bruyne, Iwobi to win EPL player of the month

Manchester United’s Rashford Marcus has been voted the winner of the Player of the Month for September.

According to BBC, the 24-year-old England forward was announced as the winner of the award on Friday.

Rashford finished top of a six-man shortlist that included Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Alex Iwobi, Jacob Ramsey, Philip Billing and Kevin De Bruyne.

After a disappointing start to the season with two losses, Rashford played an integral role in United’s remaining games, with the forward delivering stellar performances in two matches for the Manchester side in the month of September, contributing two goals and two assists.

After receiving the accolade, Rashford, in an interview, explained United’s change of fortunes this season.

He said: “It’s a good feeling. We didn’t start the season so strongly; so to get four wins on the bounce is really good.

“But there are still a lot of steps to take and we’re all looking forward to doing that together.”

Rashford scored his two goals in September for Manchester United in the win against league leaders Arsenal.

He will aim to continue his good form in front of goal after the international break as Manchester United takes on neighbors Manchester City in the derby on Sunday, October 2.
