Vote Matty Longstaff here – Nominated for October Premier League goal of the month

1 year ago

The Premier League goal of the month nominations for October have been announced.

There are seven nominations in total.

Amongst the seven is Matty Longstaff thanks to scoring that raker against Man Utd on his Premier League debut.

Newcastle might not score very many…but in terms of quality v quantity NUFC are top of the league.

Only three Premier League goals scored by Steve Bruce’s team over the course of September and October and yet Willems nominated is September and now Matty Longstaff for October.

Leicester City must be feeling a bit hard done by, scoring 19 goals compared to Newcastle’s three and yet only one nomination each of these last two months.

The seven nominations are:

Matty Longstaff – Newcastle United v Man Utd

Aaron Connolly – Brighton v Tottenham

Douglas Luiz – Villa v Norwich

Gylfi Sigurdsson – Everton v West Ham

James Maddison – Leicester v Southampton

Jay Rodriguez – Burnley v Chelsea

Anthony Martial – Man Utd v Norwich

Vote HERE for Matty Longstaff.

Newcastle United official announcement:

‘Newcastle United’s Matty Longstaff has been nominated for the Premier League’s Budweiser Goal of the Month award for October for his stunning strike against Manchester United.

The 19-year-old, making his top flight debut for the Magpies, powered a low shot from 22 yards beyond David de Gea to score what proved to be the only goal of the game in a man of the match performance.

And he has now been shortlisted for the monthly prize for his goal. Voting opened at 1pm (GMT) on Friday, 1st November and closes at 6pm (GMT) on Monday, 4th November. Supporters can vote here.

Also nominated are Brighton & Hove Albion’s Aaron Connolly, for the second of two goals he scored against Tottenham Hotspur; Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz, for a strike against Norwich City; Gylfi Sigurdsson of Everton, for an effort against West Ham United; Leicester’s James Maddison, who scored in the Foxes’ 9-0 win against Southampton; Burnley man Jay Rodriguez, for his goal against Chelsea; and Man United’s Anthony Martial for a strike against Norwich.

Jetro Willems was shortlisted for September’s award for his strike against Liverpool at Anfield, but was pipped by Southampton’s Moussa Djenepo, who won the prize for his solo goal against Sheffield United.

The winner of October’s award will be announced later this month.’
