Alexis Sanchez names the Arsenal teammate he "gets on best with"

Six goals and three assists in 11 Premier League games serve to emphasise just how important Alexis Sanchez is to Arsenal's title bid this season.

The Chilean has been nothing short of sensational, having seamlessly adapted to the lone striker role Arsene Wenger has deployed him in. 

With Sanchez up front - and Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil supporting him - Arsenal have pace in abundance going forward and look dangerous every time they breach the final third.

Indeed, the Gunners have scored the fourth most goals in the Premier League this season (24), behind only Manchester City (25), Chelsea (26) and Liverpool (30).

Sanchez certainly seems happier than ever in north London and, in a recent interview, per the Evening Standard, he named the teammate he "gets on the best with".

He said: "I get on the best with Ozil. I enjoy playing with everyone but I get on even better with him.

"We don't need to say anything to each other, it just takes a glance.

"Having a player like Ozil in midfield and doing one-twos with him is fantastic because he is a quality player going forward. He helps me and also makes me improve."

Sanchez and Ozil's relationship has blossomed since the Chile international made the transition from winger to striker.

The world-class duo almost single-handedly tore Chelsea's defence to shreds on September 24, with Ozil's goal in the 40th minute encapsulating their new-found chemistry.

After turning N'Golo Kante and playing a through ball to Sanchez, the German kept running and eventually latched on to his teammate's clever cross to the back post, volleying emphatically past Thibaut Courtois.

It was poetry in motion, with Sanchez also getting himself on the scoresheet.

So in tune are Sanchez and Ozil with each other at the moment that Arsenal's Chilean ace believes they're playing like champions.

"We're playing with a mentality that we want to win everything and become champions," he added.

"We are taking it step by step in terms of our fixtures and ambition but we are not conceding many goals. That is a good place to be.

"We have more desire to achieve something big by winning the Premier League. We have a great side, we are very ambitious and we want to win the title."
