Alexis Sanchez only Arsenal player worthy of 'Invincibles' tag - Parlour

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour suggests Alexis Sanchez is by far the best player at the club.

Former midfielder Parlour is of the opinion that the Chilean is the only current Gunner who would be any chance of fitting into the 'Invincibles' side of 2003/04 who did not lose a match on the way to the Premier League title.

"I don't think the full backs would be good enough. Lauren was a great underrated player and Ashley Cole was fantastic," Parlour told Carlsberg's 'The Peoples Pundit'.

"I really like Laurent Koscielny; he's improved so much. I could maybe see him getting a game instead of Kolo Toure, alongside Sol Campbell. You could make an argument for that, anyway.

"In midfield, (Patrick) Vieira and Gilberto did a great job and (Robert) Pires was a very good player.

"The only one I could really see getting in would be Sanchez, on the right side of midfield.

"As for up front, none of them would have any chance of replacing (Dennis) Bergkamp or (Thierry) Henry. Not a chance."
