Jean Michaël Seri made the £18-million move from Nice to Fulham over the summer and through four matches this season, it appears Seri is the real deal in the Premier League. He has scored once in four matches but that one goal against Burnley on Aug. 26th was named Premier League Goal of the Month for August.

This goal was fantastic. The Ivorian picks up the ball about 30 yards from goal after Luciano Vietto played the ball square into his feet. Seri takes a touch to open up his body and beat Jeff Hendrick before looking toward the goal. His curling effort did not give Joe Hart any chance as the ball found the top corner to give Fulham the lead in the fourth minute. The Cottagers would pick up its first three points back up in the Premier League after the 4-2 win over the Clarets.

Seri has looked at home in the Fulham midfield this season. Through these four matches, Seri leads the club with the most passes averaged per contest, while also being second in tackles and interceptions. His mobility and understanding of the match have helped him turn into a very capable player during the early stages of his Premier League career.
