Arsenal must rotate their squad as Alexis Sanchez carries the weight

The ESPN FC team preview Week 19 of the Premier League as Arsenal square off with West Ham United, while Chelsea face a tough Southampton test.

The problem with a player that is so good is that you become overly reliant on him. Alexis Sanchez was incredible in Arsenal's 2-1 win against Queens Park Rangers on Boxing Day. He was at the centre of everything: He won a penalty (although missed it), scored, set up another goal, and when Arsenal were trying to run down the clock, he ran himself into the ground closing down the opposition.

No doubt, Sanchez has been magnificent this season. He's scored goals, created goals and won the fans over...

Olivier Giroud was sent off for clashing with Nedum Onuoha during Arsenal's 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers.

Arsenal's 2-1 win over QPR was a valuable result but in typical fashion they made life a lot more difficult for themselves. At 1-0 up and completely in control, Olivier Giroud's silly reaction to a Nedum Onuoha foul left referee Martin Atkinson with no option but to send him off. 

Although they doubled their lead with 10 men, a generous penalty brought Harry Redknapp's side back into the game. By the end it was backs to the wall defending that saw the Gunners through.

The Daily Express reports that...

Three Points: Sanchez inspires, Giroud disappoints for Arsenal

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Alexis Sanchez (37') Arsenal 1-0 QPR

A trio of observations on Arsenal's 2-1 win vs. Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.

1. Arsenal's Alexis dependency

Where would Arsenal be without Alexis Sanchez?

The answer to that question hardly bears thinking about for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger or the club's army of supporters, who once again relied heavily on their brilliant and seemingly tireless Chilean to unlock the door to victory.

Wenger continues to insist his side have not become entirely reliant on a player for whom he paid 35...
