Ghanaian midfielder, Mohammed Kudus has won the Goal of the Month for October at West Ham United.

The 23-year-old's debut goal in the Premier League against Newcastle United won the Goal of the Month award, beating strikes from Lucas Paqueta, Riko Ueki of the women's team, Dan Regie, and Gideon Kodua of the U21 team.

Kudus has been in blistering form for the Hammers, scoring in his last two games for the London club, with his latest against Brentford an outstanding goal.

In a video shared on social media, confirming his goal of the month award, Kudus struck from outside the box to beat Nick Pope in the Newcastle United goal.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate has now netted five goals for the Hammers since joining them in the summer transfer window from Ajax.

Kudus and his teammates have switched their attention to Thursday's Europa League game against Olympiacos at the London Stadium.

"That last game, to be honest, we did not play as well as we should,” Kudus' Algerian teammate Said Benrahma told "It was not good for us. We didn’t play our usual football, and we can do better.
"We need to forget that away game and focus on this game. We know sometimes that games are hard, and our performance as a group in the away game against Olympiacos was not good for us, but we have faith in our abilities and can be confident about the home game."
