Alexis Sanchez has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season – and his fine form continued on Saturday as he helped fire Arsenal to victory at Watford.

The Chile international has netted six top-flight goals for the Gunners – six in his last three games – to help Arsene Wenger’s men move up to second place in the Premier League and two points behind leaders Manchester City.

Eden Hazard, along with many of his Chelsea colleagues, has endured a few weeks to forget. The Belgian playmaker is yet to net in the top flight and was dropped to the bench for Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Now, these stats show from Squawka just how much better Sanchez has been performing than the PFA player of the year in recent weeks.

The Chilean has had almost four times the number of shots as his Belgian counterpart and has also made more take-ons.

Hazard, however, does have two more assists than his Arsenal counterpart in the Premier League.

Who is better?
