CRISTIANO RONALDO has been awarded Premier League Player of the Month following a stellar return to Old Trafford.
After an emotional second Red Devils debut against Newcastle, CR7 scored three goals in three Prem appearances in September.
The 36-year-old scored twice in the 4-1 win against Newcastle at the start of the September, as well as the opener in the 2-1 victory over West Ham.
CR7 beat Joao Cancelo, Antonio Rudiger, Allan Saint-Maximin, Ismaila Sarr and Mohamed Salah to the award.
Fans voted for the winner via the Premier League website, with a panel of football experts also weighing in to decide who receives the trophy.
It's the fifth time he has landed Prem Player of the Month accolade, having previously scooped the award in November and December 2006, as well as January and March 2008.
Unsurprisingly Ronaldo also picked up Manchester United's Player of the Month award for September for his contributions in the Champions League as well as the Prem.
The striker notched the opener in the shock 2-1 defeat away to Young Boys on September 14.
