The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been disappointed with the form of Alexis Sanchez this season. The Chilean returned to the team late after a summer break, and though he delivered a few good performances initially, it was clear that he was nowhere close to his best.
To be fair to him, he’s had a very busy few years. Between club and international football, he’s hardly had a rest since moving to the Emirates, but this year it appears to have taken its toll. He’s lacked the energy, drive and commitment that have made him a household name in England, and that is costing the Gunners.
Against Southampton over the weekend he showed more of the same, with the Chilean failing to lead the charge as the Gunners stumbled to a 1-1 draw against the Saints.
With Arsenal set to take on West Ham on Wednesday, then, Arsene Wenger could have a big decision on his hands. He’ll want to secure a win, and at this point, Sanchez isn’t pulling his weight enough to demand a start.
With that said, Wenger should replace the Chilean with 1 of these 2 players against West Ham – agreed?
