Ian Wright has revealed on BT Sport that he would prefer Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez ahead of Chelsea’s star man Eden Hazard.
Wright made 221 appearances for the Gunners between 1991-98, and said: “I will have to go for Alexis Sanchez because I am an Arsenal man”, he told BT Sport’s football show, after he was asked to choose his fantasy league preference between Hazard and Sanchez.
“Purely because of that. I love Eden Hazard, but I am not going to upset Arsenal fans right now.”
Sanchez has been in good form in his debut season in England, with a return of 14 goals. The Chilean, who moved from Barcelona in the summer for £30 million, has become an instant fan favourite at the Emirates. The 14 goals, the most recent being a stunning strike against Liverpool on Saturday, have come in just 27 Premier League appearances, as well as plenty of assists.
Hazard on the other hand has been a key player for the Blues, helping himself with 12 goals so far this campaign and has been tipped by many to claim the best Player of the Year award.
