The German has come to the fore in recent weeks and Gunners legend Henry believes the pace and movement of the Chilean is a dream for the playmaker. The £42million German star has been at the heart of Arsenal’s bright start to the campaign, with the Gunners unbeaten since the opening day – a run of 13 matches.


Thierry Henry believes he has the reason for Mesut Ozil’s excellent form at the start of the season – Alexis Sanchez. Ozil, 28, has been hugely impressive in terms of his overall performance, but has also added a greater goal threat to his game, with six already this term.


That’s just two less than the World Cup winner managed in the entirety of 2015-16 and the club’s record goalscorer believes that he has Arsene Wenger’s decision to use Chilean star Alexis as the focal point at the tip of the side’s attack

The former Barcelona star has spent much of his first two years at the Emirates being utilised in a wide berth.


But now, despite the presence of Olivier Giroud and £17million Lucas Perez in the Gunners’ squad, Alexis has made the No.9 spot his own – with Henry believing his pace, movement and intelligence is getting the best out of Ozil.
