With a potential title challenge on the cards, it goes without saying that Arsenal must get the best out of their star players. However, one player who has not been up to his usual best of late is Alexis Sanchez. Since returning from a hamstring problem, the player simply has not been able to exert his influence on games.
We thought he would be ready to teach his old club Barcelona a lesson but it simply wasn’t to be. Even during the Gunners’ FA Cup draw against Hull City in the weekend, the Chilean, who was introduced as Arsene Wenger’s trump card, simply was not able to turn the game for his team. Despite being his usual energetic and hard-working self, Sanchez really seems to lack a bit of cutting-edge at the moment, and boy how Arsenal need him to find it!
Gooners worldwide can only hope that the Chilean is just finding his feet again after a spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring problem. On his day, Alexis can be a nightmare for any defence in world football and with the Gunners still alive and firing in two out of three competitions, it is really crucial for Alexis Sanchez to start finding form again.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this is a player who is capable of carrying a team on his shoulders, as we saw last season. Despite a poor run of form and injury issues, we know that a fully fit and focused Alexis Sanchez has the ability to fire Arsenal to the title. So here’s hoping that our star man finds some form ahead of a crucial run of fixtures that will determine the Gunners’ title credentials.
