Arsenal will be away to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, and their club legend Paul Merson doesn’t think any Arsenal player can make it into the Chelsea starting lineup apart from Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez scored a beautiful goal for the Gunners in their Europa League game against FC Koln on Thursday night and when asked how many Arsenal players in the current squad he thinks would get into the current Chelsea side, Merson said on Sky Sports’ The Debate: “One. And that’s Sanchez.

“He scored a worldie again tonight (against Koln) and he would get in.”

Sanchez is in the final year of his contract and was keen on leaving the Emirates before the close of the transfer window, but no deal materialised. He’d be a free agent at the end of the season.
