Chilean given generous odds for annual award.
The bookies can usually be trusted when it comes to predictions – but it would seem as though they may have missed Arsenal winger Alexis Sanchez’s stunning form this season that has seen him reach double figures for goals in all competitions already.

Indeed, the Chilean is a generous 20/1 to win the player of the year award, stunning odds compared to leading contenders such as Chelsea’s Belgian winger Eden Hazard.
If Sanchez continues his recent form, the bookies could well end up regretting ignoring his chances of leading the Gunners to success:
