Alexis Sanchez may be one of the crown jewels in Arsene Wenger’s crown, but the Chilean forward has unquestionably looked a little sluggish at times this season after a gruelling summer with his country at the Copa America.
Sanchez has actually scored six goals in just 12 Premier League appearances this term, but stats show that he needs to concentrate more on keeping the ball for his team-mates, as he went into the current international break as the player who has given away possession the most in England’s top-flight.
Dribbling may be seen as one of the former Barcelona man’s strengths, but he has now been dispossessed a massive 41 times in his 12 appearances, more than any other player.
He’s also had 28 unsuccessful touches of the ball, showing he struggles to keep the ball when it’s given to him at times.
It for interesting reading for Wenger and his coaching staff, as well as fans of the north London club.
The Gunners are second in the Premier League at the moment, behind Manchester City on goal difference, who travel to West Brom on Saturday afternoon looking to keep pace with the Blues.
