It will be no surprise to any Arsenal fan or anyone who has been watching the Gunners play recently, to hear that the Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez has been voted by the fans as the Arsenal Player of the Month for October.
In fact, it was such an easy decision that the 25-year old got a massive 90 percent of the votes, with the player in second place, Danny Welbeck, getting less than five percent and Kieran Gibbs in third getting less than two percent. That makes two of these awards in a row for Alexis and you have to wonder whether he is going to do what Aaron Ramsey did last season and just keep winning it.
A fit and firing Ramsey is one of the few players in the current Arsenal squad that I can see getting anywhere near the next award, assuming that the former Barcelona forward continues to play the way he has been doing. Another is our new centre forward Danny Welbeck, who started this month with a superb Champions League hat-trick against Galatasaray.
If the 23-year old England international had been able to build on that game a bit more, he may have got a much bigger share of the vote, but apart from his well taken late leveller against Hull City, he was outshone by his team mate.
Maybe this month will see Welbeck really pick up the baton for Arsenal, with the home game against Burnley on Saturday giving him a fantastic chance to get November off to a flyer. So Gooners, do you think anyone else will offer a serious challenge to Alexis making it three in a row this time next month?
