The best Premier League moment of the month


90min is home to PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month Award for the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons.

Each month, you can vote for your favorite players in five divisions of English football, for the chance to win incredible prizes, including the opportunity to award the prize to the winning player.

The early stages of a Premier League season are always exciting, but it’s fair to say that October has been a bit of a roller coaster.

We’ve seen plenty of goals, chaotic defensive play (to put it mildly) and some magnificent individual performances from some of the division’s very best players – as well as some seasonal challengers.

It has made it quite difficult to choose the ten best moments of the month, but 90 minutes have dug in, found a way and got the job done – even ranked them from 10 down to number 1.

It has been a difficult start to the season for Norwich to say the least, and it was emphasized by 7-0 in the hands of Chelsea.

Mason Mount was the star of the day, scoring his first hat-trick for the Blues as they emerged as the all-rounder at Stamford Bridge. Worrying for all the other teams in the Premier League, Thomas Tuchel completed the route without Romelu Lukaku or Timo Werner available. Yuk.

Andros Townsend beat Ronaldo’s SIUUU celebration after equalizing for Everton at Old Trafford! ?

Manchester United did not really enjoy the month of October, and they really did not enjoy Andros Townsend imitating Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration when he scored Everton’s equalizer at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old scored a fantastic goal in counterattack, before running into the corner to celebrate the attack with Ronaldo’s brand “SIUUU”.

Ronaldo was not very amused either …

Watford’s first match under Claudio Ranieri was nothing short of disastrous, as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool ran out on a rampant 5-0 win at Vicarage Road.

Fast forward a week and it was the Hornets who celebrated to score five points, which made a remarkable recovery to defeat Everton 5-2 away. Josh King was the hero for Ranieri and Watford, scoring a hat-trick against the club that barely gave him a chance last season.

The Wolves looked as if they were slipping to defeat Midlands rival Aston Villa, after 2-0 with barely ten minutes left.

But in a dramatic turn, Bruno Lage’s side came to life and turned the game completely upside down to get 3-2 winners. Romain Saiss and Conor Coady got the visitors back on equal terms after 85 minutes, before Ruben Neves stepped up to win it five minutes into overtime.

Rena Barclays.

A lucky fan who got Ben Johnson’s shirt?

West Ham’s sensational start to the season continued with a dominant 4-1 win away to Aston Villa.

There were many outstanding artists on the day for the Hammers, but few better than academy graduate Ben Johnson – who started the shooter with a fantastic left foot strike.

He celebrated in a certain style at the final signal and embraced a close school friend in the crowd while parting with his match shirt – heart-warming stuff.

Edouard Mendy made a * big * performance for #CFC in Brentford! ??

It’s not often Chelsea drops, but they got a really good match from rivals in west London, Brentford.

Fortunately, the Blues invested in a fairly handy goalkeeper named Edouard Mendy last season, and he was in sparkling form all afternoon to keep Thomas Frank’s Bees in check.

Some of Mendy’s saves were truly world class, and the congratulations he received after the match spoke volumes about the quality of his performance.

Manchester City’s clash with Brighton on the south coast was full of class and aesthetically pleasing football, but the star of the show was undoubtedly Phil Foden.

Sure, the dynamic young Englishman had Bernardo Silva to thank for pulling the strings in midfield, but Foden’s display as a false nine was absolutely breathtaking.

England’s future will be very bright if he ever replicates this form on the international stage.

Writing off Liverpool due to a lack of big signings was a mistake many made, but we were all reminded of the Reds’ class in October.

Watford fought 5-0 at Vicarage Road and unbelievably the trick was repeated when Jurgen Klopp’s Reds traveled to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United a week later.

It was men against boys all afternoon, where Mo Salah enjoyed Manchester’s freedom on the way to make a devastating hat trick.


The footwork is magical, the finish is sublime.

He had the Watford defense on strings! ?

There is no better player in the world than Salah at the moment, and he challenged this season’s Premier League goal during Liverpool’s pounding victory over Watford.

As he danced away from a possession of defenders with the ball glued to his feet, the Egyptian continued to bend a wonderful shot past Ben Foster from an acute angle, leaving the former England goalkeeper rooted to the spot.

It really was one of those goals that made you blow your cheeks and say wow.

The build-up to Newcastle’s Premier League match with Tottenham was dominated by the Skatars’ takeover of a Saudi-led consortium. It was actually a party-like atmosphere around St James’ Park, with over 50,000+ fans of Toon excited to see the back of Mike Ashley.

But things took a very gloomy turn in the middle of the first half when a fan was taken seriously badly in the stands – suddenly football no longer mattered.

Fortunately, Sergio Reguilon and Eric Dier were connected to what was happening. The former made sure that referee Andre Marriner stopped the game, before the latter announced that a defibrillator needed to be driven over to the opposite stands.

The ambulance staff was able to stabilize the condition of the fan and he has since been discharged from the hospital to continue his recovery.

Voting for the PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month award begins on November 4.
