Vote for April’s Goal of the Month
Voting is now open for our men’s Player of the Month for April, and there are four contenders to choose from.
We had five matches in the month during which we netted 12 goals, and the scorers of the majority of those strikes feature prominently.
Evaluate which of these players deserve the accolade, and then vote for your favourite below:
Our striker netted his first goals since returning from his lengthy injury layoff during April, beginning a run that saw him net in three successive matches.
After bagging a brace against Leeds United, he then converted a fine header against Liverpool before tapping home his ninth goal in our colours against West Ham United. He scored his four goals from just five shots on target.
It was another stellar month for Gabi, who got himself on the scoresheet twice when he netted against Liverpool and Southampton, taking his tally to 15 for the campaign.
He also laid on three assists for his teammates, setting up Ben White against Leeds, Jesus’ goal at Anfield and Martin Odegaard’s volley at the London Stadium – three of 14 chances he carved out during the month.
Martin carried his fine goalscoring form into April, as he added another two to his name by scoring a well-taken volley at West Ham before curling home from range to kickstart our comeback against Southampton.
An assist was also claimed when he clipped in a perfect pass for Granit Xhaka to head home against Leeds, and he boasted a passing accuracy of 86 per cent during his five appearances.
Once again proving to be an effective force in defence and attack from right-back, Ben scored his second goal in our colours when he netted against his former club Leeds.
The following week saw him set up Jesus at West Ham, and then another assist came his way when he linked up with Odegaard against the Saints. He also won back possession 27 times and made four interceptions in his five outings.
