Poll results: Most important duo both sidelined for Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez Golden Ball

Alexis the Champion!

Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla have earned the right to be called the most important Arsenal players this season, with some thoroughly impressive displays, and typically are both currently out of action, although there is reports that both could potentially return in time for the Manchester United match next week (fingers crossed).

The Chilean sneaked the vote by only 49 votes over the Spaniard, and his switch to centre-forward this term has brought so much good out of our whole squad as a whole. His move has allowed Mesut Ozil, who came third in the poll, to get into goalscoring positions more often, and the whole team is thriving in confidence.

Laurent Koscielny wasn’t far behind the German in fourth place, and I was quite surprised to see him this low, especially as we were faltering at the back in his absence at the beginning of the campaign.

Petr Cech, Francis Coquelin and Hector Bellerin all failed to pick up 100 votes or more of the 2290 total votes.

Poll results:

Alexis 712 votes (30%)
Cazorla 663 votes (29%)
Ozil 388 votes (17%)
Koscielny 347 votes (15%)
Cech 88 votes (4%)
Coquelin 63 votes (3%)
Bellerin 30 votes (2%)

Do you agree with the order of importance?

      And vise versa.

    2. Break-on-through says:

      Tatek, there’s an argument for Alexis bringing the best out of Ozil but the other way around I do not see. Ozil rarely finds Alexis in dangerous areas or through on goal, maybe he helps him a bit by making space but again it’s Alexis who makes the best space for people with how occupied defenders are with him.

  2. muda says:

    The presence of Mustafi is what minimize the impact of Kosielny, so is like we have two Kosielnys instead of one, 2 coquelins (Xhaka), 2 cechs (Ospina) but we have only one Alexis, one Santi and one Mesut.

      And 10 midfielders!

      1. Break-on-through says:

        It’s a wonder you didn’t point out that there isn’t another Giroud either, maybe you thought it would open yourself up to a snappy reply. Giroud will be important in some games, because a well drilled plan to stop our flow is still a danger to us. He was a big part of our last league win.

    WORRY TIMES always to November!

  4. Break-on-through says:

    By 49 votes, great number.

    If Chile play him which it looks like they are as he’s training with them, then I don’t think Arsene will risk him v utd.

    I used to say Alexis is easily our most important player, but after seeing Arsenal without Cazorla last season and the difference it made, I decided not to take part in the vote. Also Koscielny as you’ve highlighted, we usually look very different at the back without him.

  5. Olivier's toe says:

    Alexis is maybe our most important player now, but by the end of the season it could be Ozil, or even Walcott.
