Alexis Sanchez is 14/1 to win Golden Boot and can finish ahead of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa
Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero have been bossing the scoring charts in the Premier League so far this season, although Alexis Sanchez is approaching fast after consecutive braces against Sunderland and Burnley.
The Chilean is bang in form and here are five reasons why he’s worth backing with betfair to win the Golden Boot.
Sanchez was prolific for Barcelona
39 goals in 88 appearances for the Catalan club led Arsene Wenger to take the plunge and sign a player who had to play second fiddle to the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar, yet he still managed to find the net.
He can score all manner of goals
The header against Burnley saw the diminutive forward beat two defenders to find the net, while Sanchez can also score from set pieces and also short range. Don’t be surprised to see him given spot kick duties this season, with this deadly assassin finding the right role in the team since Welbeck arrived.
Costa and Aguero are injury prone
The Chelsea man has been missing for parts of the season and it appears his hamstring injury will be nursed throughout the campaign, while Sergio Aguero’s Manchester City career has been hampered by knocks which could easily emerge again.
He plays for a free-scoring team
Arsene Wenger’s teams might be defensively suspect although they are always on the front foot, with Danny Welbeck playing as a foil for the Chilean, while Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott returning should lead to even more goals.
Sanchez is starting to peak right now
At the age of 25, the forward is getting close to the finished package, having been schooled since 2011 at Barcelona but now ready to make his mark on English football, with the Chilean having started out with Udinese but now ready to make waves in the Premier League.
