Arsenal season looks to have gone haywire again following the possibility of finding themselves 11 points off the top spot if Chelsea beat Tottenham today.
Anyways, their seasons have not always gone as planned in the last 12 seasons. The probability of them winning the title this season is extremely low and it is better they shift their focus to securing a place in the top four and they need to be mindful of Tottenham and Man United who are both eyeing spots in the Champions League next season.
However, despite all that, one man have stood out. Alexis Sanchez has been deeply involved in their crucial title race. One may wonder where Arsenal would have been this season without him in the team.
The Gunners have scored 44 league goals and Sanchez has been involved in almost of those goals. If his contribution were to be deducted, they will be somewhere around the tenth position on the table.
Since Wenger came with the decision to convert him to a central striker, the Chilean international has been phenomenal winning matches for Arsenal and dragging back into matches where necessary.
The former Barcelona attacker has been involved in 20 league goals this season, scoring 13 and assisting another seven. His goals have contributed in no small measure to the Gunners remaining in the top four.
His involvement in 20 league goals this season is the first and the highest so far in Europe’s top five leagues.
With that statistics, Sanchez is above some of the finest players in the world and it could only signifies that Arsenal need to tie him down to the club.
