We had you, our readers, vote in our polls to help us find the fans favoured starting line-up, but we ended up with a problem.
Alexis Sanchez has been voted to take both the striker role, and an attacking midfield role, and unfortunately we only have one of him!
The Chilean has been growing into his new central role this term, and is gradually beginning to shine, forcing Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez to ponder what they will have to do to break into the first-team.
This has led to confusion within our fans XI, as a large number of you voted for him to star in our attacking three, as well as up front, and we ask for to make the decision on Alexis’ final place within our team.
Voting remains open on each of our positions while we clear the places up, with some slots closely contended for currently, with Cech not dominating his number one spot as much as expected, and with Alexis’ replacement within the squad also yet to be determined.
If you would like to cast your vote on any of the various positions, the team is yet to be finalised.
But most importantly, answer this one to help us clear up our final XI.
Is Alexis most important to us as an advanced midfielder or centre-forward?
- Striker (55%, 445 Votes)
- Advanced midfielder (45%, 365 Votes)
Total Voters: 810
Alexis has of course helped us to get our season on track whilst starring in the central role, but he has also shown impressive ability in behind the striker, and we do not yet know how much improvement he can make in his new role.
Does Alexis’ dominance of two spots show weakness in our squad, or simply highlight Sanchez’s importance?
