Arsenal have made a strong start to the 2023/2024 season, and one player who has stood out is their new signing, Declan Rice. The 24-year-old midfielder has been named Arsenal’s Player of the Month for August after an outstanding first month at the club.

Rice joined Arsenal from West Ham in the summer transfer window for a whopping £105 million, making him one of the most expensive signings in Arsenal’s history. However, he has quickly justified his price tag with his performances on the pitch.

In his first three league games for Arsenal, Rice played a crucial role in helping the team collect seven points. His industrious displays in both defence and attack caught the eye of fans and earned him 56 percent of the vote for Player of the Month.

Defensively, Rice was exceptional. He won back possession 17 times in just three games, making nine tackles and four interceptions to break up play. Against Fulham, he was statistically Arsenal’s best defender.

But Rice’s impact wasn’t limited to just defensive contributions. He also proved to be effective going forward. In those three league games, he made 29 final third entries and combined well with Arsenal’s frontmen. In fact, against Nottingham Forest, no one had more shots on target than Rice, who tested Matt Turner on three occasions.

Furthermore, Rice showcased his passing ability by completing over 92 percent of all his passes during August. This highlights his composure and ability to retain possession under pressure.

Arsenal fans can now relive Rice’s best moments by watching a video compilation on the club’s official website. It is clear that Rice has made an immediate impact at Arsenal and is already becoming a fan favorite.

With such an impressive start to his Arsenal career, it will be exciting to see what else Declan Rice can achieve as he continues to settle into life at the club.
