Theo Walcott is the EA SPORTS Player of the Month.

The England international has won the official Club award for the third consecutive month after a scintillating run of form in December.

Walcott scored four goals in five appearances, including a top-class hat-trick in the 7-3 victory over Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium.

An Henry-esque finish got him started and he doubled his tally with a well-placed shot into the top corner before completing his treble with a jinking run and clever finish.

Walcott was also on target in the 5-2 win at Reading before Christmas, making the most of his chance in a central role. The England star now has 14 goals in just 12 starts in all competitions this season.

Walcott won our December poll by a landslide, finishing more than 40 per cent clear of Jack Wilshere with Santi Cazorla in third place.
