Alexis Sánchez or Mesut Özil? Stats reveal the player Arsenal MUST keep [INFOGRAPHIC]


Arsene Wenger is on the path toward a crossroad decision regarding two of Arsenal’s biggest stars.

The Gunners are yet to tie down Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil to new contracts despite their current deals both expiring in 2018.

Stats released by daily Fantasy Football game have revealed which player the club must keep hold of, if it came down to a choice between the pair.

It is a comparison decided by the slimmest of margins – with Sanchez having netted over twice as many goals as the German with less games played, although Ozil dominates in terms of assists with a total of 36.

The former Real Madrid playmaker leads in terms of successful passes at an average of 55 per outing, also creating over three chances for teammates to score. However, Sanchez takes 3.4 individual attempts at goal each outing and completes more take-ons.

With both key players looking for a big increase in wages to remain at Arsenal, it would be an unenviable task to choose between either attacking star and one which could shape their squad for years to come.
