The Premier League awards for the best player, manager, and goal have been announced for the month of April.

Player of the Month – Jesse Lingard

The Manchester United loanee was in sensational form yet again for West Ham to claim his first-ever Premier League Player of the Month award.

Lingard scored four goals in as many league games to keep the Hammers in the thick of the top-four battle.

The last West Ham player to win this award was Michail Antonio in July 2020.

Manager of the Month – Steve Bruce

While doubts over his future and regular criticism from fans have clouded his season, Steve Bruce got the job done in the end by ensuring Newcastleโ€™s survival in the Premier League.

The Geordie-born gaffer led Newcastle to two wins and two draws from four league games in April.

And with a 12-point cushion from the relegation zone, the 16th-placed Magpies can breathe a sigh of relief ahead of the final three games of the season.

Goal of the Month – Jesse Lingard

Lingard made it two of two in the player awards for April by winning a first Goal of the Month prize.

The 28-year-old won the accolade for his superb solo goal against Wolves on April 4. He collected the ball inside his own half, ran at the Wolves defense, capitalized on a Michail Antonioโ€™s decoy run, and then fired the ball past Rui Patricio with a left-footed finish.
