Following the conclusion of the Premier League season, we take a look at the stats behind Alexis Sanchez's debut campaign.

Signed from FC Barcelona for a fee in the region of £35million, per the BBC, Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez was quick to make an impact upon his arrival at the Emirates. 

Below is a round-up of some of the more significant figures and stats the Chilean international has recorded over the course of hismaiden season in England.

Having made 35 appearances, only Santi Cazorla featured more regularly than Alexis Sanchez throughout his debut Premier League campaign. These fixtures saw the Chilean international start on 34 occasions, coming off the bench just once. 

With 16 goals, Sanchez ends the season as the Gunners' top scorer - two ahead of frontman Olivier Giroud. He also ranks fifth in the overall league standings.

The 26-year-old is yet to score a league hat-trick for Arsenal. Instead, he has had to settle for scoring a brace on four occasions.

Having fashioned 79 key passes, Sanchez also concludes the campaign as his side's most creative asset, although Santi Cazorla trails closely behind with 78. 

Only Santi Cazorla (11) has recorded more assists than the Chilean, who has set-up a further eight goals. 

After combining his goals and assists, Sanchez has directly contributed to 34% of the Gunners' goals this term. 

Having averaged over three successful take ons per appearance, Sanchez ranks fifth in the Premier League based on dribbles completed in each appearance. 

In terms of total take ons completed, the Chileans ranks second (115). Only Chelsea's Eden Hazard has found success in more dribbles this term (180).

Having completed a mere 77% of his passes this season, with the exception of Olivier Giroud, Sanchez boasts the worst success rate of any Arsenal outfielder this term.

Sanchez missed just one of Arsenal's Champions League fixtures, playing in Europe on seven occasions. During this time, he created more chances than any other player (11), while scoring a joint-highest three goals.
