Arsenal fans have overwhelmingly voted Alex Oxalade-Chamberlain as their player of the month for February, with the young midfielder having scored three times and provided one assist in that period.

Oxlade-Chamberlain received exactly 46 percent of the votes cast on the official Arsenal website, with Laurent Koscielny a distant second having garnered 15 percent, and Tomas Rosicky just behind on 14.8 percent.

The 20-year-old had missed five months of action until his return in January, and has now been able to establish himself in the Arsenal midfield following the season-ending injury sustained by Theo Walcott in the FA Cup defeat of Tottenham.

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored twice in the 2-0 victory against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium in early February - his first goals since December 2012 - while he also provided the opener against Liverpool in the cup.

The England international then laid on the assist for Lukas Podolski to score the decisive goal and book a meeting with Everton in the quarter-final of the competition.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is the fourth different winner of the Arsenal player of the month award this season, with Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott the most recent recipients after Aaron Ramsey had won the first four of the campaign.
