Arsenal legend Ray Parlour believes Alexis Sanchez is the only player in the current squad capable of getting into our legendary Invincibles side, the Daily Mail reports.
Following his double against Hull City on Monday night, Alexis took his tally for the season to 24 and became the first player to reach that milestone in his first season since Thierry Henry.
Signed from Barcelona last summer, Alexis has mesmerised many with his ability to combine his devastating qualities with his infectious work rate.

Parlour is adamant that Alexis stands alone in terms of players in our squad capable of making it into that sensational team.
“In midfield, Vieira and Gilberto did a great job and Pires was a very good player,” the former midfielder was quoted as saying.
“The only one I could really see getting in would be Sanchez, on the right side of midfield.
“As for up front, none of them would have any chance of replacing Bergkamp or Henry. Not a chance.”
Despite the negative perception which may cross people’s mind upon reading Parlour’s comments, he’s hardly insulted any of our current stars.
It would be difficult to find many players around the world capable of finding a way into a team that was literally unbeatable.
Arsene Wenger created a side which encapsulated all the qualities a top side should possess and should he recreate a team with half their quality, we would walk the Premier League next season.
Saying that, we think Mesut Ozil would have as much right to start on the right wing as Sanchez, and think Laurent Koscielny has a shout at centre-back, too.
