Stats: How Calum Chambers won Arsenal player of month award

Mathieu Debuchy and Arsenal celebrate (Chambers included)

Summer signing Calum Chambers has proved to be instantly reliable at the Emirates Stadium as he's been named Arsenal player of the month for August.

Calum Chambers has been awarded the Arsenal Player of the Month prize for August, an honour midfielder Aaron Ramsey won an astonishing four times last season.

The 19-year-old received 34.8% of the total votes and just edged a fellow summer signing Alexis Sanchez, who received 33.4% of the votes. Ramsey placed a distant third with a 17.2% tally of the total votes cast.

A £16 million signing from Southampton, Chambers was believed to have been earmarked as a prospect for the future as he struggled to even establish himself in the Saints set-up.

However, the teenager has slotted seamlessly into the Arsenal first-team, has competed in Champions League football, made a hat-trick of Premier League appearances and even convinced England manager Roy Hodgson to not only call him up to the senior Three Lions squad - but give him his debut, against Norway on September 3.

In Premier League football alone, Chambers has proven to have a reliability and efficiency in his work that belies his age.

In August, he received a touch on the football once every 1.04 minutes, returned a passing accuracy of almost 94% and was prolific when it came to completing defensive contributions.

Chambers, though, was not the only one in the running for the club's in-house player of the month award as Alexis Sanchez, too, saw a lot of the football, proved to be a menace with the ball at his feet and even opened his goal-scoring account for his new club.

Ramsey, also, has performed excellently for Arsenal - and his statistic of 118 touches on the ball for a per game average is almost akin to the most graceful midfielders in world football like Toni Kroos and Xavi.

Ramsey averages making 97 passes each game, produces a clear goal-scoring opportunity twice in every game, hits the target with 40% of his shots and has already scored twice from ten shots.
