Leandro Trossard scored the first five goals of the Roberto De Zerbi era.

Leandro Trossard’s sparkling form in October has earned him a nomination for the Premier League’s player of the month award.

Albion’s Belgian forward scored five goals including our first Premier League hat-trick in the 3-3 draw at Liverpool at the start of the month.

He also netted in the 3-1 defeat to champions Manchester City before getting the ball rolling with our first goal at the Amex last Saturday in the 4-1 win over Chelsea. That effort meant he had scored the first five goals under new head coach Roberto De Zerbi.

Trossard is one of seven nominations for the player of the month award, along with Newcastle United’s Miguel Almiron, Kieran Trippier and Bruno Guimaraes, Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland and Arsenal’s Grant Xhaka.

You can vote for Leo here with the winner announced on Friday, November 11.
