Can Alexis Sanchez help lead Arsenal to a Barclays Premier title?
Alexis Sanchez is a Chilean footballer who played for Barcelona and moved to Arsenal in the summer of 2014. In his debut season, Sanchez has scored 13 goals and assisted seven in 25 games. Multiple teams in England have brought in foreign players for vast amounts of money and few have settled like Alexis at Arsenal. Sanchez’s stats reflect the impact he has had on the team.
The Chilean forward is a complete footballer who has an impact all over the pitch. Sanchez has made more interceptions and tackles than other forward in the Premier League. The Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak is the only player to score five or more goals and have more interceptions and tackles than Sanchez. In his first season in the Premier League, Sanchez ranks as the fifth highest goal scorer and fifth in created assists. Sanchez has clearly hit the ground running and will only improve as he further adjusts to the English league.
If Arsenal can add some more world class talent to their team, they will no doubt be able to challenge for a league title with Alexis Sanchez leading the front line.
