If one statistic sums up Alexis’ ever-increasing influence at the club, perhaps it’s this:
The Chile star has been involved in 18 goals in 18 Premier League appearances for us this season - 12 goals and six assists. That’s more goals than he had a hand in during 30 top-flight appearances last season.

It’s been quite a calendar year for Alexis. Copa America winner - again. Arsenal’s top scorer - again. More often than not he leads the line for us. So no wonder the man himself feels like a leader now.
“I definitely feel like an important player and my teammates let me know every day,” he told Arsenal Player. “I try to prove that I am an important player every day and game after game. I believe we have the players and the quality to win many things.
“I feel really happy and comfortable at the club,” added Alexis. “I want to give the fans a new title. We always get our fans’ support in the thin and the thick, which is great. We must win the Premier League or the Champions League for them.”
More polls coming soon...
