We are facing the extremely difficult task of heading to the Etihad to face Manchester City on Sunday, but according to Manuel Pellegrini and Arsene Wenger we have the best player in the the Premier League to help guide us to victory, as reported by the Express.
Our sensational summer signing Alexis Sanchez has been in fantastic form so far this season, and has quickly grown into a vital part of our setup.
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been incredibly impressed with the form Sanchez has been showing, and the Chilean manager even went so far as to claim his compatriot is the best in the Premier League.
“Every game I see him making a great effort, showing great commitment, ambition and the maturity needed to keep improving year after year,” he said.
“I’m happy for him because, at this time, he is the best player in English football.”
This is a huge compliment coming from a manager who has the likes of Sergio Aguero at his disposal, and Le Prof agreed with him whole heatedly.
“It’s a great compliment because Pellegrini knows football well,” he said.
“I agree with him – at the moment Sanchez is one of the top performers in the league.”
Aguero has been out injured for some time, but unfortunately for us could be in line for a return to action this Sunday. Both he and Sanchez are potential difference makers, so let’s hope he is a little rusty after his lengthy spell on the sidelines.
We managed a 2-2 draw against the Premier League champions in the reverse fixture at the Emirates, but need to start winning games against the top teams if we are going to have any hope of finishing in the top four again this season.
