Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is reportedly better than fellow marksmen Antoine Griezmann, Gareth Bale and Sergio Aguero according to the latest round of FIFA 18 ratings.
The Chilean, who was recently at the centre of a transfer saga between Arsenal and perennial rivals Manchester City, surprisingly edged out the stars in the highly anticipated video game to the shock of a large section of fans.
Sanchez has been ranked as the 14th best football player in the world with an 89 overall rating (84 in shooting, 86 in pace and 89 in dribbling), leaving the likes of City goalgetter Kevin De Bruyne, Madrid winger Gareth Bale, City striker Sergio Aguero and Atletico Madrid linchpin Antoine Griezmann in 15th, 17th, 18th and 20th position respectively.
A case can however be made for the 28-year-old, being that the talisman scored 24 goals in 40 appearances for the Gunners last season, and positively influenced Arsenal’s chances of success whenever he was on the pitch.
