– As 8 Arsenal players make top 50
– Jenkinson weigh in at 32nd
Alexis Sanchez has shot to the top of the Sky’s Premier League Power Rankings following his brace against Manchester United last weekend, with the Chilean blowing his nearest competition out of the water.
The former Barcelona star got off to a slow start this season, and didn’t look likely to recreate the form which saw him become our top scorer last season with 25 goals in all competitions. With a hat-trick against Leicester kicking off a spree of six goals in three games however, he’s looked back to his best in recent weeks.
He was unquestionably the best player on the pitch against Manchester United, which is saying something considering how fantastic the likes of Mesut Özil and Theo Walcott were. Hopefully he continues in this vein of form, and helps guide us to Premier League glory this season.
Other Arsenal players in the Top 50 rank include surprisingly Nacho Monreal in the 4th position, also Mesut Ozil despite been touted as a lazy player by many Arsenal fans and football pundits weigh in at 10th position.
These were followed by the likes of Theo Walcott, Petr Cech, Gector Bellerin, Santi Carzola and Per Mertesacker.
However, in the 32nd position is on loan Arsenal defender, Carl Jenkinson who has been a main stay in the West Ham United defence.
Second in the list is Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, who shot up the rankings following his five goals against Newcastle. He is still nearly 3000 points below Alexis however, which shows just how fantastic the talismanic Gunner has been.
