Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the Arsenal Player of the Month for February.

After sustaining a knee injury in the opening game of the season, the England international was sidelined for five months. However, he returned to action in mid-January and really found his form last month.

Alex's performances on the right flank have been particularly encouraging with Theo Walcott ruled out for the rest of the campaign, and his three goals in February indicate that he is hitting his stride at just the right time.

Alex scored his first for the Club since December 2012 when he latched onto a cute Santi Cazorla pass to strike against Crystal Palace, before adding a second soon afterwards with a fine finish from the edge of the area. Alex also scored the opener in our FA Cup fifth-round victory against Liverpool.

The Ox eased to a comfortable victory in our Club poll, claiming exactly 46 per cent of the votes cast. Laurent Koscielny's assured displays at the back saw him edge out Tomas Rosicky for second spot.
