Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez has been named the PFA Fan Player of the Month for October.
The Chilean notched three goals last month and has deservedly been recognised by 90min – formerly known as FTBPro.
Sanchez scored Arsenal’s first in the 2-2 draw with Hull at the Emirates, before setting up Danny Welbeck’s dramatic equaliser.
He then followed it up with both goals as Arsene Wenger’s men beat Sunderland 2-0 and he has carried the fine form into November.
Another two goals in the 3-0 success over Burnley last weekend took his league tally to seven, before a stunning strike in Tuesday night’s dramatic 3-3 draw with Anderlecht in the Champions League.
The PFA Fan Player of the Month Awards are designed to give supporters a strong voice in the game; and are endorsed by players and clubs.
One lucky fan voter will now be chosen to present Sanchez with the award in person later this month.
Sanchez’s displays have seen him compared to fellow South American Luis Suarez, by boss Arsene Wenger.
“I said many times: when you see where he comes from, where he was born, and you think he finishes at Barcelona and Arsenal, you need something special, or it does not work,” said Wenger.
“There are similarities. Suarez sometimes gave the ball to the opponent but he gave it back straightaway. Sanchez is the same. There is no time between offence and defence. They are very quick as well.”
