Pukki and five other unlikely Player of the Month winners as Norwich man wins award

first_imgTeemu Pukki has been named the EA Sports Player of the Month for August and no player has been more deserving of the award.The Norwich forward enjoyed a dream start to his Premier League career, becoming only the tenth player to score in his first three appearances, netting in the season opener at Liverpool before getting a hat-trick v Newcastle United as well as a goal and an assist against Chelsea. 5 appointed Wickham produced a run of sensational form to keep his side in the Premier League Connor Wickham – Sunderland – April 2014In April 2014, Sunderland picked up seven crucial points to retain their Premier League status and this was mainly due to the great form of Wickham.Having suffered defeats to Tottenham and Everton, Wickham bagged a double in a 2-2 draw at Manchester City.Three days later he got on the scoresheet as Sunderland famously beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, before his double the following week helped Sunderland see off Cardiff 4-0.The Wearside club stayed up, finishing 14th, but Wickham’s form didn’t last with unsuccessful spells at Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds, before joining Crystal Palace in 2015.
