Alexis Sanchez is the Vitality Player of the Month for September.

Arsenal's star signing was pipped to the August prize by fellow new boy Calum Chambers but he's gone one better at the second attempt, winning the club's official monthly poll with a shade under half of the votes cast.

Alexis was a consistent threat in September, most notably in a thrilling 2-2 draw against Manchester City at Emirates Stadium. The Chile international scored a tremendous volley - recently voted Goal of the Month - to briefly put Arsenal in front.

A stunning free-kick in the Capital One Cup tie against Southampton was another stand-out moment, and Alexis came off the bench to help Arsenal rescue a point in the north London derby against Tottenham.

Jack Wilshere was second in September's poll while new signing Danny Welbeck completed the top three.
