Martin Keown has claimed that Arsenal could win the league with Alexis Sanchez up front.
The Gunners forward has been moulded into playing in a centre-forward role this season, and this weekend went onto show us why Arsene Wenger has been installed with this newfound confidence within him up front.
Sanchez scored the opening goal of the match before going onto pick up the Man of the Match award in the 3-0 demolition of London rivals Chelsea.
Keown has now moved to praise the Chilean, naming the forward as the stand-out performer in an overly impressive team performance.
He said: “It was a fantastic team performance but this fella is the icing on the cake. I haven’t seen anyone of this quality for years, since [Thierry] Henry.
“He’s got pace, quality and creates panic in the defence.
“Can he link with players as [Olivier] Giroud does? Yes, of course he can.
“You can’t get tight to him. David Luiz and Gary Cahill just couldn’t cope with him.
“It gives Arsenal that little bit of something to attack the opposition. The Arsenal faithful are out of their seats, they have finally got a player that can make the difference.
“It takes lots of things to be champions and you have to have a player at the top of the team to believe in and they certainly believe in him at the moment.”
Is Sanchez now the man to lead the charge as we look to bridge the gap between ourselves and the top of the table? Will a permanent switch to centre-forward help him maintain his form?
