Martin Keown suggests Alexis Sanchez can fire Arsenal to the Premier League title this season.

Sanchez has largely been used as a central striker by Arsene Wenger this term, and shone again in the 3-0 victory over Chelsea, earning plenty of praise in our 16 conclusions on the encounter.

And former Gunners stalwart Keown has compared the Chile international to one of the club’s greatest ever players.

“This fella is the icing on the cake, I haven’t seen anyone of this quality for years, since [Thierry] Henry. You just cannot take risks with him here, he picks his pocket [Gary Cahill] absolute quality.

“You can’t get tight to him. Cahill, David Luiz didn’t know how to cope with him. And it gives Arsenal that extra little bit of something.

“The Arsenal faithful have finally got a player that can make a difference. It takes a lot of things to be champions. But you need a player at the top of the team that he rest can believe in.”
