Arsenal defeated rivals Manchester United in their last Premier League game and should be confident going into the fixture against Watford.
The North Londoners are only two points behind league leaders Manchester City and if they continue to play brilliantly then winning the league title can be a major possibility this season.
In the latest Arsenal news, Chilean star Alexis Sanchez who is arguably the best playmaker in the Gunners’ squad at the moment is set to get a pay rise (Daily Mail) that will make him earn more than record signing Mesut Ozil.
As per the provided Mail link, Sanchez currently earns £130,000-a-week for the Gunners. On the other hand, German international Ozil earns £140,000-a-week.
Without doubt, Alexis deserves a new deal and also deserved to be the best paid player at the club but this news might upset the record signing to an extent who will not be the highest earner at the club any more.
After a slow start to the season, both Ozil and Alexis have been in top form for Arsenal. Perhaps, Arsenal should hand Ozil a new deal as well.
