Sanchez polled 44% in a Sky Sports voting for the EPL player of the season on social media
Sanchez was preferred by 44% of the voters to the rest of EPL returnee, Cesc Fabregas,United goalie, David De Gea and Man City striker, Sergio Aguero who is currently the highest goal scorer.
The Chilean came tops in the poll conducted on social media by Sky Sports.
The result may be questioned in some quarters, regarding Arsenal's performance throughout the first stanza of the season which has them occupying the 5th position.
However, the 26 year-old stellar display for the Gunners this season after the switch from Barcelona, with 15 goals in all competitions so far supports the voter's choice as the most prolific footballer in the league.
