The Chilean scored 16 goals and??provided eight assists in his maiden Premier League campaign, helping the Gunners to a third-place finish. He also assured Arsenal’s??place in Saturday’s FA Cup final with two strikes against Reading in April???s semi-final.
Sanchez was one of 10 players nominated for the award and triumphed over Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and??Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in a??public poll that received over 200,000 votes.
Hazard, who helped Chelsea to the title, scooped the PFA Player of the Year award for which Sanchez was part of a six-man shortlist.
Arsenal paid Barcelona ??35m for Sanchez’s services last summer.
