Sebastien Haller is KUMB.com's Player of the Month for August 2019, having achieved an average rating of 7.66.

The French striker has proved to be an instant success at West Ham having scored three times in his first four Premier League fixtures with goals against Watford (2) and Norwich City.

The club's record signing, Haller scored a rating of 6/10 in his first appearance for the Hammers - a baptism of fire against Manchester City for which he was named Man of the Match - before being awarded 9/10 for his performance at Vicarage Road and 8/10 for the Norwich clash.

Club captain Mark Noble was a close second to Haller but has only featured in two matches - the wins against Watford and Norwich, for which he received an average score of 7.50 for two sterling performances.

And close behind in a three-way tie for third are Arthur Masuaku, goalkeeper Roberto and Felipe Anderson, the only player to receive two Man of the Match awards during the opening month of the season for the games against Newport County and Norwich City.

Altogether Manuel Pellegrini used a total of 23 players during August, four of those - goalkeeper Roberto, Pablo Zabaleta, new signing Albian Ajeti and youngster Conor Coventry - only featured once, in the 2-0 Carabao Cup win in Wales.

The highest individual score - as awarded by KUMB's match reporter Chris Wilkerson - was 9/10, as achieved on three occasions.

Michail Antonio scored a 9 for his performance against Watford, a match in which he was credited for turning the game in West Ham's favour, as did Sebastien Haller for scoring a brace in the same game and Felipe Anderson for an eye-catching effort against Norwich last weekend.
