‘He’s Been Immense’ ‘Totally Deserves it’ – Arsenal Fans on Twitter Praise 30 Year Old Following Player Of The Month Award

Arsenal attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been named the club’s player of the month.

The Armenian has performed well recently, scoring three goals and laying on two assists during the month of February.

Fans on Twitter congratulated Mkhitaryan for his recent upturn in form:

Other supporters felt that Bernd Leno should have been given the nod:

Leno’s most notable performances, against Tottenham and Manchester United, actually came in March so the German keeper will be a prime candidate when nominations are open for this month’s award.

For Mkhitaryan, it has been a pretty positive first full season at the Emirates. In total, the 30-year-old has made 27 appearances, scoring six goals and providing six assists.

A broken foot has, somewhat, curtailed his playing time, but he actually returned from his layoff in fine form with top displays against Southampton and Bournemouth at the back end of last month.

Mkhitaryan missed the 2-0 win over United with a slight back problem but should be back in contention when the Gunners play Rennes on Thursday night.
