Aaron Connolly celebrates the first of his two goals against Tottenham Hotspur.

Aaron Connolly, Adam Webster and Leandro Trossard make up the three-man shortlist for Albion’s third month of the campaign — let’s see exactly why they’ve been nominated…

Aaron Connolly vs Tottenham Hotspur:

The Irish striker became the first teenager to start for the Seagulls in the Premier League, and then became the first to find the back of the net for the club in the division. The forward's first effort showed great instinct to react quickest to a rebound from an initial shot, prodding past Paulo Gazzaniga to double Albion's advantage after Neal Maupay's early header.

Connolly then doubled his tally and scored the side's third with a wonderful solo effort in the second half, giving Graham Potter's men an impressive 3-0 win.  

Adam Webster vs Aston Villa:

The defender grabbed his first goal for the club at Villa Park, opening the scoring on the afternoon when he met Pascal Gross's free-kick from the right-hand side. Webster's header was perfectly placed back into the far bottom corner of the goal, but the hosts would battle back to seal a 2-1 victory over ten man Albion thanks to goals from Jack Grealish and Matt Targett.

Trossard happy to be back

 Leandro Trossard vs Everton:

The side's final contest of the month ended in dramatic fashion. Pascal Gross notched a stylish free-kick in the first half, before a Webster own goal and a strike from Dominic Calvert-Lewin turned the game on it's head in favour of the Toffees.

But a rousing finish at the Amex from Potter's men saw Maupay convert from the penalty spot with ten minutes to go, before substitute Trossard - who had been introduced with just over 20 minutes to play, capped a wonderful passing move to force Lucas Digne to turn the ball into his own net. It meant the Seagulls ended 3-2 winners on another memorable afternoon on the south coast.
