Robin van Persie is the EA SPORTS Player of the Month.

The Arsenal captain has been unplayable at times this season and enjoyed an incredible October, scoring seven goals in five matches.

Robin was on target after just 29 seconds against Sunderland - netting the Club's fastest ever Premier League strike - and secured all three points with a sumptuous late free kick.

He came off the bench to score another brace and earn another victory against Stoke but saved his best for the final weekend of the month when his hat-trick stunned Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Robin has now scored 28 goals in 27 Premier League games in this calendar year but it was his leadership as much as his form that earned him a landslide win in our official Club poll.

The fans voted in their thousands, handing the captain 88.1 per cent of the vote. Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey both enjoyed solid months but they finished well behind in second and third place.
