Jude Bellingham was named the EA Sports La Liga Player of the Month for August in the run-up to Real Madrid’s match against Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabéu. The midfielder was recognized for his outstanding start to the season, in which he scored four goals in three games.

His outstanding start began in Real Madrid’s La Liga opener at San Mamés against Athletic Club when he scored the clincher to make it 2-0. Bellingham scored a brace in the comeback against Alméria at the Power Horse Stadium (1-3), and his late winner against Celta at Balados gave Ancelotti’s side the win.
