Erling Haaland has scored goals again but he doesn't win the Player of the Month.

Erling Haaland is one of, if not the best, striker in the world. Haaland suffered an injury in December and came back from that injury last month. Haaland scored three goals in the Premier League last month, but he wasn't the most impressive player in the league. The Premier League revealed the winner for February's Premier League Player of the Month, and he plays for Manchester United. The winner was revealed to be Man United striker Rasmus Hojlund.

Hojlund scored five goals and provided one assist in the month of February as he helped Man United win most of their games last month. Hojlund started a goal-scoring streak in the Premier League against Spurs in January. Since then, he has scored in every Man United game in all competitions. He suffered an injury that kept him out for the last three Man United games.

Hojlund spoke about receiving this award and said, "I’m very happy. Of course, it’s a big privilege to get this award, especially with the other contenders who were nominated as well. So yeah, I’m very grateful and happy for the award.”

Hojlund talked about how the positive momentum has helped them in the past month. The Danish striker said, "I always like to say I have the confidence before I go into the game. Of course, you get a little bit more momentum going into the game when you’ve scored. You feel like you’re in good form and in a good flow, and you just want the next game to come.”

Hojlund reveals his favorite goal last month in the Premier League

Hojlund has five Premier League goals to choose from to pick his favorite. Hojlund said, "[I’m scoring] all types of goals, but my favorite one probably has to be the chested one against Luton, which I really liked. When you’re in a good flow, these things just come more naturally to you, I think. I was probably not aiming to put it that well into the goal, but I was quite impressed by my own thought, like trying to get my body towards the goal and trying to see if I could actually get something out of it, which I ended up doing it to perfection, I would say.”
