Another fantastic month for the Arsenal and it’s our defending that deserves to be highlighted for a change. Yet to concede in the Premier League this season, all we have to do is score and control our games. We did just that against West Ham United and Southampton, cruising to victory against Besiktas in the Champions’ League and against Aston Villa, who have been very poor this season.
Leeds United gave us more than a few troubles in the Capital One Cup, meaning I had to bring out a few more big boys off the bench to help out the youngsters I had started. Luckily, we turned the game around and so progress through to the next round to face Norwich City.

Arsenal’s Player of the Month
Some huge performances came from Laurent Koscielny and his defensive block this month, so we have much of his work to thank for our quality start to the season.
It’s a potentially tricky month for us coming up, although we should get off to a winning start against Sporting and Hull City. Our match-up versus Cesc Fabregas and Chelsea should be our biggest test yet, whereas our clashes against Schalke and Newcastle United promise to be challenging ones too. As for Norwich City in the Capital One Cup, the Leeds game taught us that we must be on our toes against weaker opposition. With that being said, if we can beat Sporting, Hull and then Chelsea, I’m confident of finishing the month with a 100% once more.
