The record, which has gone unnoticed by the league itself (we keep pretty close track of Kerr stats here at TWG) is particularly special given the award's competitiveness.

Kerr won the award after Chicago had a perfect five from five wins throughout September, with Kerr scoring a whopping five times for symmetry.

While Kerr has dominated the golden boot and striker standings, the Player of the Month award tends to be spread around the league, given how packed the NWSL remains with the world's best female footballers.

For instance, this season has seen Kerr receive the award prior to September just once, fighting the likes of Jess Fishlock and Christen Press throughout the season.

Chicago have also underperformed at various stages, although they now boast a home semi-final on October 21.

With four awards, Kerr joins Little, who currently plays under Joe Montemurro at Arsenal but made her name with Reign FC. She's one award above Christine Sinclair and April's winner, Christen Dunn.
