Sanchez Wins Arsenal’s September Best Player Award

By Adebayo Williams

Arsenal’s Chilean attacker Alexis Sanchez has been named the club’s September Player of the Month. The former Barcelona forward has netted four times in five games this season. He won 39.4 per cent of the votes to edge Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi to the award. Sanchez scored the opener for the Gunners in their Chelsea victory as well as a brace at Hull City. He also rescued a point for the Arsene Wenger-led team against Paris Saint Germain in their opening Champions League match in Paris.

Sanchez had been a target for top European clubs in the summer transfer window with Real Madrid and Juventus chasing his signature. He has helped Chile to two Copa America trophies.
