I went around Toronto asking the following question from 1000 Arsenal fans.
“Who is more important(Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil) for Arsenals title ambitions and why?” The response I got was overwhelmingly in favour of Alexis Sanchez by 70%.
All those who answered felt that Arsenal FC should show Alexis Sanchez the money and ensure he signs on a new contract as he is more vital to Arsenals overall play. They said he is the only warrior with a fighting spirit and deserves to be rewarded for his performances. They did however state that Ozils’ playing style was good but he went missing in the big games and has not been consistent enough to make a regular impact on important matches.
Alexis Sanchez has scored 18 goals and provided 9 assists to Mesut Ozils’ 5 goals and 5 assists during the 2016/2017 season. Mesut Ozil equalled the most number of assists in a season during the 2015/2016 season to a grand total of 19 while scoring 6 goals to Alexis Sanchez 13 goals and 4 assists.
Sanchez has outperformed Ozil over the past couple of seasons and is more vital to Arsenals title ambitions both on and off the pitch.
