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

Tomas Rosicky ran him close but the prolific Dutchman emerged victorious from our February poll with just over 40 per cent of the fans' votes.

Robin continued his fine run of goalscoring in February, firing a hat-trick in the 7-1 win over Blackburn Rovers at Emirates Stadium.

The striker also turned provider, overtaking Theo Walcott in the Premier League assist charts by the end of the month.

Van Persie was among the goals once more in the North London derby win over Tottenham, hitting a brilliant equaliser on the stroke of half time to help Arsenal pull off a thrilling comeback.

Rosicky came second with 31.7 per cent of the votes, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was third with 9.7 per cent.
