Santi Cazorla is the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for February.

The Spanish playmaker was neck and neck with Jack Wilshere in our official Club poll but just pipped his team-mate to the prize by a handful of votes.

Cazorla has been a revelation in his first season with Arsenal and he was hugely influential in February as Arsène Wenger's side won three times in the league.

The Spaniard scored the winner at Sunderland and then netted a brace to see off Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium.

Cazorla beat Wilshere by just 0.8 per cent and the England star can consider himself unlucky after some outstanding displays in midfield.

Lukas Podolski was a distant third in our February poll after scoring against his former club Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
