Sarr has netted three times this month, scoring a brace as Watford bagged a 3-1 win at Norwich City to give the newly-promoted Hornets their second victory of the new top-flight campaign.

The 23-year-old Senegal international also netted in last weekend's 1-1 draw at home to Newcastle United and the winger is one of six nominees for the division's player of the month award for September.

Sarr has been shortlisted alongside Manchester City's Joao Cancelo, Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo, Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger, Newcastle United's Allan Saint-Maximin and Liverpool's Mo Salah.
