Arsenal fans have voted for the club’s August player of the month, with Sead Kolasinac winning out.
The left-back, who arrived from Schalke on a free transfer this summer, started each of the club’s first two Premier League games of the season, and put in a match-winning performance in the Community Shield against Chelsea.
He recorded one assist in the 4-3 win over Leicester, but could not help the Gunners as they lost 1-0 to Stoke.
In what is almost certainly a message to Arsene Wenger, Arsenal fans voted Kolasinac as their best player of August, with Alexandre Lacazette in second.
Both players were dropped from the starting line-up for the club’s crushing 4-0 loss to Liverpool before the international break.
The Arsenal website praised Kolasinac for his ‘physical strength and robust performances’ in the first month of the season.
Petr Cech came third in perhaps the least competitive field in recorded history.
