Robin van Persie is the Barclays Player of the Month for October.

The Arsenal captain will be presented with his award before Saturday's game by Kevin Wall, MD and Head of Coverage for Barclays Corporate and Vice Chairman for Barclays Capital.

Last Saturday, as a result of scoring his hat-trick in the victory at Chelsea, Robin became the first player to score ten goals in this season’s Barclays Premier League.

As well as receiving a trophy for being the first player to reach this milestone, Robin also receives £1,000 from Barclays, which he will donate to a charity of his choice.
