Felli Wins Player Of The Month
Belgian scoops award for August.
Marouane Fellaini has been named Everton’s Player of the Month for August.
The versatile Belgian started the season in superb form with a beastly performance in the opening game win over Manchester United.
The 24-year-old followed up his winning goal against the Red Devils with another in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa.
The defeat at West Brom was frustrating for both Fellaini and his side, but the Belgian was back on song as the Blues dominated against a Newcastle team lucky to escape Goodison Park with a point.
Fellaini, who was presented with his award at a TW Steel-sponsored gala dinner at Liverpool’s Hilton Hotel, said: “It is a nice feeling to win the award. August was a good month and the main thing is that the team has started well.
“The win against Manchester United was a game in which every single player performed very well and I was lucky enough to get the winner.
“That was a great feeling as it is not every day you score a winner against a big team like that.”
Next up for the Blues is a trip to Swansea on Saturday, and Fellaini added: “That is a tough game. Swansea were a revelation last season and played good football.
“We beat them twice and that will give us extra confidence for the game, but it is a new season, they have a new manager and some new players. It will be difficult but we will be looking to win the game.”
