Bruno Fernandes has been named the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for June, winning the award for the second time in succession. 

Fernandes becomes only the seventh player in history to earn the prize twice in a row, having claimed February's accolade, and the first to do so from the start of his Premier League career.

And he made it an awards double with the Budweiser Goal of the Month accolade for June.

The Portuguese earned the EA SPORTS award after scoring four goals, including a double against Brighton & Hove Albion and a penalty at Tottenham Hotspur in June. He also found the net at Everton, with the performances in the first half of March also taken into account.

The Manchester United midfielder enters an elite club last joined by Mohamed Salah in 2017/18, following on from Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dennis Bergkamp and Robbie Fowler.

He topped a shortlist that also included Conor CoadyDanny IngsRaul JimenezAnthony Martial and Allan Saint-Maximin, as votes from the public were combined with those of the 20 club captains and a panel of football experts to decide the winner.
