Opinion: Reasons Why Arsenal's New Player-Partnership Is Potentially Better Than The Ozil-Alexis One

Partnerships are the fundamental basics of a football club and it is very important for players to form partnerships to increase chances of achieving set goals and objectives.

In football, partnerships constitute a bigger part I'm title-winning teams from centre-backs to the midfielders and attacking players. To function properly as a team, partnerships must be developed across the pitch.

A lot of partnerships have graced Arsenal's home Stadiums (Highbury and Emirates) over the years like the Henry and Bergkamp partnership, Campbell and Toure partnership, Ashley Cole and Robert Pires partnership. But in recent times, fans can fondly remember the partnership between German midfielder Mesut Ozil and Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez.

The understanding between them was almost telepathic. It was a joy to watch as both players exchanged passes between each other while barely looking up to see where they are positioned.

Another partnership is brewing at Arsenal and this partnership is potentially better for the club than the Ozil-Alexis one. This partnership is between Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe. Here are reasons why this new partnership is potentially better than the Ozil-Alexis one.

1. Loyalty: Fans can remember that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil's exit from the club wasn't a good one. Alexis Sanchez forced a move to Manchester United while Mesut Ozil refused to leave and Arsenal had to pay the entirety of his wages before he left for Fernabache.

Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are from Arsenal's famous Hale End Academy and would feel more loyalty towards the club.

2. Longevity: Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe also broke into the first team at a very young age (18 and 20 respectively) which means they have a lot more time to potentially win more silverware for the club and write their names into the history books.
