Good morning Arsenal family all over the world, it is going to be a lovely Saturday for us; I can feel it in the air already. Today, I will like us to choose our own player of the month of January. Amongst these four players I will talk about in this article, choose your player of the month. Let’s ride!!!
Pierre Aubameyang: By a wide margin, thiswonderful player has performed more than any other attacker at Arsenal this season. Ever since he came to Arsenal in 2018, he has not looked back. He has scored important goals, he has assisted and together with his striking partners he has rescued Arsenal many times. He is a champion and knows what to do to win games or score crucial goals. With 22 premiership appearances and 14 league goals to his name, he has performed so well this season, to be named as the player for the month. Apart from the red card he was issued against Palace, he has done everything right for Arsenal in the month of January.
Bernd Leno: The German international goalkeeper has solved Arsenal’s goal keeping problems. His potentials were not to be hidden for so long that when he came to Arsenal, it didn’t take long for him to displace the then number one, Petr Cech. This season, he has made several saves in important games, to save Arsenal from either losing or losing scandalously. With a clean sheet against Manchester United to his name, he surely deserves to be mentioned among the best Arsenal performers for January. With a good defence and Leno in goal, we may not lose many games next season.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos: The 31 years old Greek international defender, is a rugged defender made to play in a league like the Premiership. Since he came to Arsenal in the summer of 2018, he has steadily improved as a footballer and this season, he has done well. In our games this year, he has done pretty well enough to be considered a main stay in the team. Against Leeds United, he played in a three man defence, playing from the right back in some cases. His ruggedness on the pitch is second to none. If announced as the player of the month, he will surely be deserving of the award.
Lucas Torriera: Lucas is one player that has the talent and ruggedness to play in the Premiership. He won the December player of the month. Has he played well enough this month to win the award again? If you ask me, I will say yes. He really needs to stay fit and match ready, to make a strong impact in Arsenal.
So folks, there you have it. Who would you choose as your player of the month? We are Arsenal and we are proud.
