Alexis Sanchez is Arsenal’s only nomination for this season’s PFA Player of the Year Award, but has he done enough to be considered as a potential winner?
The Chilean has been key in our season thus far, and has been on-and-off the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts for most of the campaign, but has fallen five behind Everton’s Romelu Lukaku after a lapse in form.
