The PFA Fans Player for The Month Of August Nominees has been announced, MySportDab reports.
Manchester City’s new signing and former Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has unsurprisingly made the list.

Haaland has been phenomenal for Manchester City. He has scored 9 goals in 5 matches in August, an incredible and perfect run.
Arsenal’s and former Manchester City playmaker Gabriel Jesus is also on the list. Since joining the Gunners, Gabriel Jesus has been incredible with the revamped Mikel Arteta squad.
Also on the list is Arsenal captain Odegaard. Wilfred Zaha of Crystal Palace also makes the list.
Pascal Gross of Brighton, who opened his Premier League debut with a record-breaking performance at Old Trafford, also makes the list.
Fulham’s Mitrovic, Rodrigo, and Pope complete the list. This will be the first edition of the award after the 2022/23 Premier League begins.
Erling Haaland definitely has the edge over other nominees due to his superb performance for Manchester City this season.
Wilfred Zaha will be a strong contender for the award, although he will be at a disadvantage when the stats are paired with Haaland’s.
In the month of August, Wilfred Zaha had four goals and was phenomenal when Crystal traveled to take on Liverpool in Anfield.
But he is still expected to play second fiddle to Haaland in the award.
