VIDEO: See Why Cristiano Ronaldo won Premier League Player of the Month award for September

Cristiano Ronaldo has made an excellent start to his life at Manchester United which saw him win the Premier League Player of the Month award for the month of September. The 36-year-old forward beat the likes of Mohamed Salah, Joao Cancelo, Antonio Rudiger, Allan Saint-Maximin and Ismaila Sarr for the award.

Cristiano Ronaldo has taken the Premier League by storm ever since he moved to Manchester United from Juventus in the summer transfer window. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner netted three goals in three matches for the Red Devils in the month of September.

He made an instant impact in the Premier League when he scored twice on his second debut for Manchester United against Newcastle United in a 4-1 win for the Red Devils. Ronaldo later scored against West Ham United at the London Stadium in a 2-1 win.

The only time Cristiano Ronaldo did not score a goal for Manchester United in September was during their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa. Only three other players are ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of more Premier League Player of the Month awards. Those include Harry Kane and Steven Gerrard (6), and Sergio Aguero (7).

Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was named Premier League Manager of the Month. Everton’s Andros Townsend’s stunning effort against Burnley was named Premier League Goal of the Month. Watch the video of how and why Cristiano Ronaldo won Premier League player of the month for September..
