Theo Walcott has won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for August by a landslide.

The England international has made a flying start to the season and he received a staggering 87.6 per cent of the votes in our official poll.

And no wonder. Theo hinted at what was to come with a sparkling cameo as a substitute at Liverpool on the opening day of the campaign and then struck a superb hat-trick against Blackpool a week later.

The 21-year-old's finishing was impeccable at Emirates Stadium and he continued his rich vein of form with a venomous strike at Blackburn at the end of August.

That goal earned Theo the Goal of the Month award and he now has the Player of the Month prize too.

Tomas Rosicky was a distant second in our poll after his own impressive start to the season and new signing Marouane Chamakh came third.

Hedley Tavener, 17, from Slinfold in West Sussex has won the chance to present Theo with his award before a Premier League game at Emirates Stadium.

Hedley and his Dad, Chris, will also receive tickets to that match.

"Theo played brilliantly in August," said Hedley. "He scored four goals in two starts and assisted with a couple as well.

"Not only has he been looking to score more and assist more, he's also had a really high work rate and has tried his best. He has been amazing."
