    Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur has been named the English Premier League Player of the Month for September by EA Sports.

    Son became the first Asian winner of the honor, which has been given since August 1994.

    EA Sports said on its website Friday that Son "enjoyed an inspired run of form for Tottenham Hotspur last month, scoring four goals and providing an assist as they won all three matches in September."

    Son garnered the most votes from a panel of experts and fans.

    Son was picked from a shortlist of five nominees, alongside Adam Lallana of Liverpool, Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City, Romelu Lukaku of Everton and Theo Walcott of Arsenal.
