It's time to vote for your EA SPORTS Player of the Month!

Arsenal started and ended October in style and remain in the hunt for four trophies despite a dip in the middle of the month.

Olympiacos were beaten 3-1 at Emirates Stadium in the Champions League and West Ham United went down to the same scoreline at Upton Park as Olivier Giroud opened his Premier League account.

Santi Cazorla scored the goal of the game in east London but even he could not stop Arsenal slipping to successive defeats against Norwich City and Schalke.

Mikel Arteta poked home from close range to get Arsène Wenger's side back on track against Queens Park Rangers on the day Jack Wilshere made his long-awaited first-team return.

And October ended with arguably the Club's finest ever comeback - from 4-0 down to 7-5 up after extra time at Reading in the Capital One Cup.

As ever there are plenty of contenders for our Player of the Month award. Carl Jenkinson and Per Mertesacker were consistent in defence, Arteta was influential in midfield and Theo Walcott and Giroud were sharp in attack.
