Ranking the 10 best Arsenal players under Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger has managed some excellent, technically gifted players. He may receive some criticism at times, but some of the players he has brought to Arsenal have been crucial to the development of the Premier League.
Arguably, without Wenger having signed Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Nicolas Anelka and other French players, it may have taken a long time before foreign players joined English clubs. He started a revolution and helped make the Premier League one of the greatest leagues in the world.
Here we rank the 10 best players to have played under Wenger:
#10 Alexis Sanchez
Having signed from Barcelona, Alexis Sanchez was a high profile signing for the Gunners, meaning the Chilean had a lot of pressure on his shoulders to outperform those around him.
However, he fit in instantly. The Chilean scored his first league goal at the end of August in his third league game for the club and never looked back.
He had scored 47 goals in 141 games in all competitions for Barcelona, averaging precisely a goal every three games. A record which he has improved at Arsenal with 72 goals in 145 games in all competitions, nearly averaging a goal every other game.
This is a phenomenal stat for a player who has played most of his Arsenal career on the left.
Sanchez may now be looking for a move away from Arsenal, but there’s no doubt that he deservedly finds himself in the top 10 players to have played under Wenger.
