Wiltord bags award
Sylvain Wiltord
Wiltord has hit a rich vein of form

Arsenal striker Sylvain Wiltord has claimed the Player of the Month award for August.

Wiltord scored four goals in Arsenal's three Premiership games during the month, including a brace against West Bromwich Albion.

The French striker has usually played wide on the right instead of his usual role in attack but still managed to help Arsenal to a good start in the defence of their Premiership title.

Wiltord has continued his goalscoring form for the French national team as he bagged the winner against Cyprus in his country's opening Euro 2004 qualifier.

The Barclaycard Awards Panel, which decides the winner, is made up of representatives of football's governing bodies, the media and fans.

"It is usually his international strike partner Thierry Henry that grabs the headlines, but Wiltord's start of season form has been electric," read a statement from the panel.

"His skill on the ball and pace when running at defenders make him a real threat to opposition sides and if his goal scoring exploits continue he must be an early contender for the Barclaycard Golden Boot."
