Arsenal striker Theo Walcott has won the club’s player of the month for September.

Arsenal.com revealed the result on Wednesday afternoon, and the Englishman received 22% of the vote after scoring four goals in six Arsenal appearances.

For years Walcott has wanted to play centrally and, after the club failed to sign a striker in the summer, has been given the chance to impress Arsène Wenger in recent weeks. He’s taken his chance well, scoring in defeats of Stoke City and Leicester City as well as finding the back of the net in Champions League losses to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos.

The Olympiacos game also saw Walcott assist Alexis Sánchez as his all-round game as a centre-forward continues to develop.

Mathieu Flamini was a close second place with 18% of the vote. The French midfielder only started twice and only played 110 minutes in September, but was the hero in the north London derby defeat of Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. Apparently scoring twice in a north London derby is all you need to do to come close to player of the month? I can’t argue with that logic.

The performances of the team were disappointing throughout the month, though defeats of Stoke, Spurs and Leicester were very encouraging.

Hopefully October brings more consistency and more goals from Theo Walcott.
