Sanchez is a supreme talent and the former Barcelona man has enjoyed a relatively positive start to his Arsenal career. He isn’t an out-and-out striker but Sanchez has been prolific in front of goal, netting 29 goals in 65 games in the famous Arsenal shirt. The Gunners aren’t over-reliant on him but they do sometimes look short of ideas when Sanchez is out of the side – especially if Mesut Ozil isn’t firing on all cylinders.
At the time of writing, Coral are pricing Arsenal at 6/1 to win the Premier League crown next season and it would take a brave man to back against them if Sanchez is back to his brilliant best. On his day, the Chile international is capable of turning a game on its head and Arsenal will be hoping they get the best out of him next season; particularly as versatile frontman Danny Welbeck might not return to the Arsenal starting line-up before 2017.
Arsenal are on the verge of challenging for the title and Sanchez’s goals will prove crucial as they look to win the league for the first time since 2004. With Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Granit Xhaka in fine form, Sanchez will get plenty of chances and he might be set to enjoy his best season in an Arsenal shirt so far. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the Gunners reap rewards from Sanchez’s form and over 20 Premier League goals would certainly give them a great chance of notching the top flight crown.
Sanchez is a unique talent and Arsenal will be eager to keep the Chilean at the Emirates Stadium ahead of a defining season for the club. Right now, it looks like Sanchez will be staying put – rumours of his departure have certainly died down in recent weeks. If he stays and performs at his very best, a top four finish and a cup success should be Arsenal’s minimum aim for the upcoming campaign. They’re simply too good to continue failing…
Right now, Coral make the Gunners one of the leading contenders to win the FA Cup and their betting markets currently indicate that Wenger’s men are 11/2 to do just that. Arsenal aren’t a ‘cup side’ but they do tend to perform well in knockout competitions and who knows, they could go all the way and win an incredible XXth FA Cup crown next year. If nothing else, two days out at Wembley will keep the majority of supporters onside.
Only time will tell but Sanchez IS capable of firing Arsenal to the title; even without Welbeck’s presence upfront. The Gunners are one of England’s footballing superpowers and it is time for Wenger’s men to retake their place at the summit of the Premier League. A title success is far from certain but Arsenal are well capable of defying the odds and finally getting their hands back on the English crown.
