Arsenal forward claims EA SPORTS Player of the Month prize after top-scoring in October with five goals

The EA SPORTS Player of the Month for October is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Arsenal striker won the award as the leading scorer in the month, with five goals, one of which was nominated for the Carling Goal of the Month award.

Aubameyang scored in each of his three matches in October.

He got a brace after coming off the bench in the 5-2 victory at Fulham, scored twice again as a substitute in the 3-1 home win over Leicester City, and once in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

'I can do better'

"I’m just trying to improve every day, trying to work a lot but I’m happy to be here in the Premier League and I try to do my best," said the 29-year-old. "I can do better."

The Gabon international's goals helped Arsenal stretch their unbeaten Premier League run to eight matches, and he has his sights set on a top-four finish.

"We have to continue on the way we are doing things," he said. "I hope we will finish in the first four. It would be good to qualify for the Champions League."

Aubameyang beat competition from five others, receiving the most combined votes from a panel of experts, Premier League captains, and from fans.
