Despite Joelinton’s stunning rise to form, it’s Toon teammate Ryan Fraser who has been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award for February.

He’s not only put in countless huge shifts for Eddie Howe over the past month, but also weighed in with a goal against Everton and a couple of crucial assists – with one of those coming in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Brentford.
