Arsenal’s record goal scorer Thierry Henry believes Alexis Sanchez playing upfront is bringing the best out of Mesut Ozil.
Ozil is widely known for his creative ability which has been evident in his assist stats over the years. The midfielder finished last season with the highest assist in the league but surprisingly he is excelling in another aspect to his game this season.
Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry has now claimed that Wenger’s decision to shift Alexis Sanchez to the centre forward position has made Ozil more prolific in front of goal.
“By myself, I always said in the past two years that Sanchez could be used as an option as a centre-forward,” Henry said.
“He’s finally playing as a centre forward. He does it for Chile, so it’s not something that he doesn’t know how to do.
“He did it for Udinese also in Italy and does it ever so well.
“When you have a guy who as a No.9, the way he puts pressure, the way he moves, his vision for the ball, that creates a lot of holes for Ozil.
“That’s why Ozil is scoring a lot of goals – off the movement of Alexis Sanchez.”
