How the Premier League's awards work

Rodrigo Muniz has been voted as March 2024's EA SPORTS Player of the Month, becoming only the third Fulham player EVER to win the award.

Striker Muniz was the Premier League's joint-highest scorer in March, netting four goals as well as producing an assist. 

He scored and set up a goal in a 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, struck a brace in a 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, and ended the month with a sensational stoppage-time scissor-kick goal to rescue a point at Sheffield United.

"Without my team-mates, the staff, everyone here, this is impossible," Muniz told Fulham's official website

"It's special. The last two-and-a-half years were difficult. Now I'm adapted to England. I feel at home here."

Muniz was brought to tears when team-mates Willian and Andreas Pereira surprised him with his award.

The 22-year-old Brazilian becomes the first Fulham player to win the award in over 14 years.

Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer was Fulham's last winner, in February 2010, while Louis Saha won it in August 2001. 

Muniz topped a seven-man shortlist after the public's votes on the EA SPORTS website were combined with those of a panel of football experts.
