We asked you guys on Twitter who your favourite current Arsenal player is and why, and the results seem to be pretty conclusive.

Despite the 2017/18 season feeling like it only started last week, we’re now 10 games deep and Arsenal are fifth in the Premier League table.

Before the campaign started, if you’d have asked most fans who their favourite Gunner was, they probably would have given you a predictable answer like Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez or Aaron Ramsey.

However, it turns out that most fans’ favourite is a player who’s been at the club since 2013 and has become our most consistent star: Nacho Monreal.

Not only is Nacho massively popular here at Cannon Towers, he’s also totally loved by you guys, and we can understand why. The former Malaga defender has scored twice and saved our skin countless times. For example, that goal-line clearance against BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

As a few of your called him: Mr. Reliable. That’s what we need right now.

In second place was new boy, Sead Kolasinac. Not only has he bedded in instantly, the Bosnia international scored and assisted during Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday, so his quality is still fresh in everyone’s minds. Plus, he’s a tank.

In third place was a name I didn’t expect to see: Olivier Giroud. Despite only scoring once in the Premier League this season, many of you lot still class him as your favourite player. Why? The striker can – usually – score goals and consistently manages to stay fit, which is pretty rare for a Gunner. The 31-year-old also seems to genuinely love Arsenal.

Other players mentioned were Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Laurent Koscielny.
