Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal has been named the PFA Player of the Month for October after an impressive spell, and some have been surprised by the decision.
The defender has been one of our best players since the start of the campaign, alongside Aaron Ramsey and Sead Kolasinac, and added two goals in the calendar month to his top performances.
The Spaniard helped us to to wins over Everton, Swansea and Brighton during October, whilst being unable to stop us from defeat at the hands of Watford, but that didn’t stop him from bringing the trophy to North London.
Kevin De Bruyne and Alexis Sanchez were the two nearest rivals for the award, which was decided by public vote, with the defender picking up 37% of all votes.
Monreal was nominated as Arsenal Player of the Month for September, and judging by the PFA Award, he must be favourite to pick up consecutive trophies.
I don’t wish to take anything away from the Spaniard, but our fans are big on putting forward their votes and nominations in polls and doe awards more than many other English supporters, but I fully believe that Monreal has had an outstanding month, but best player in the division is up for debate.
Who do you honestly believe has been the best player for the month for October? Have Monreal and Alexis been Arsenal’s best two players of the last month?
