Who gets my vote from the four Arsenal Player of the Month nominees?

Four names have been selected for October’s Arsenal Player of the Month award, and arguments can most definitely be made for all of them.

Emile Smith Rowe and Aaron Ramsdale will likely fight it out for the award, with the pair soaking up much of the plaudits of late, and in a normal month both would have done enough to take the merit.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had two goals and an assist from his four league outings in October, but it was his hard work, his pressing, and his team work were near his best.

Despite our captain’s showing, he still appears to have been upstaged by three of his team-mates.

Gabriel Magalhaes has been a commanding presence in our side, and his organisation and communication along with Aaron Ramsdale has seemingly moulded our side into a real team, a unit which has proved to dominate some of the top sides in the division.

Both our goalkeeper and Smith Rowe earned a place in the WhoScored.com October Team of the Month, proving that they not only impressed on the eye, but were statistically amongst the best in the division also, and I do believe that they will fight it out for the award.

While the midfielder statistically had a higher average score, goalkeepers and outfield players operate under different scrutiny, and I feel like the fans will have been more impressed by Ramsdale this month, especially with his Man of the Match performance standing out in our minds from the weekend.

That being said, I believe Emile Smith Rowe has been our best and most consistent player since the season began, and at present, he would be my vote to pick up the Arsenal Player of the Year award, but there is of course plenty of football to be played beforehand.

Who is your Arsenal Player of the Month for October?

    1. Not sure Auba should be on any list. Ramsdale and ESR have been both at a high level and I can’t separate how good they have been. I have been blown away by how good Ramsdale has been though and ‘clean sheets’ give all the other players a chance to shine. So Ramsdale, but ESR has been absolutely top drawer too. That ESR has come through the academy is very special. I did not expect Ramsdale to be so good.

  1. I think ESR has played well this month, and Ramsdale had a great game against Leicester, but (and I have been critical of this player in the past)…..

    I would give my vote to Lacazette. Since he got back into the team he has acted much more like a captain than Auba. He has led by example, and the players around him have responded by matching his effort.

    Cynic that I am though, I worry this new found enthusiasm on his part may just be an attempt to increase his value for his “up-coming move”. Even so may he keep on putting in the effort, at least until Xmas.

  2. Smith has been superb like superb! but I think Ramsdale has done more than enough to earn the MOTM. Imagine if Ramsdale hadn’t made those saves, smith efforts would have been made futile and judging by that I think he deserves it without any doubt.
