van Persie Wins Duo Of Barclays Awards

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has won the Barclays Player of the Month award for October after an electrifying month that saw him score seven goals in three games taking him to 28 goals in 27 games in the Barclays Premier League during 2011, and helping Arsenal up to seventh place in the League table.

Van Persie`s goal tally this month has taken him to the top of the Barclays Premier League scorers` chart where he is the first player to reach 10 goals in the race for the Barclays Golden Boot.

The Arsenal captain led from the front, scoring both goals against Sunderland at the Emirates as his side triumphed 2-1. His excellent form continued as he went on to bag another double as Arsenal overcame Stoke 3-1 at home.

The Dutchman rounded off an impressive month with a memorable hat-trick against London rivals Chelsea. Van Persie scored his sides` first to level the match 1-1 and was back amongst the goals to finish Chelsea off with two late strikes.

This is the third time that he has won the Barclays Player of the Month award, having previously claimed the prize in November 2005 and October 2009.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football`s governing bodies, the media and fans.

No other player deserved it more; at least I can't think of any other. Nice touch to tweet: "But I have to slice the trophy in bits because some assists from the boys were (insanely) good! Thanks again mates! Looking forward to tomorrow!" about his golden boot award for being the 1st player to hit 10 goals. On current form, no reason why he can't go on to win the award again for November -)
