A brazen Arsenal fan this week made his girlfriend take an exam on the club he loves with the penalty for failure the termination of their courtship.
Intrigued by this tyrannical approach to relations management, we at news.bwin.com decided to have a stab at his quiz.
Judging by the standard of questions, it appears the ruthless taskmaster wasn’t keen on the prospect of severing ties with his significant other and we, akin to his partner, coasted through the test without many difficulties.
That is until we came to the standout question of the procedure.
It read: ‘In your own words, explain why Alexis Sanchez is better than Eden Hazard.’
Having contemplated the prospect briefly, we scribbled this answer down:
He’s a bigger goal threat
Hazard may have been anointed PFA Player of the Year this week, but at this moment in time he can’t claim to be as a frequent a scourge of defenders than his Chilean counterpart.
Both players are best deployed in a wide berth, with the left flank most commonly housing the pair this season.
Despite playing more games for a team that has scored more goals, Hazard’s return of 13 goals and eight assists is one shy of the 14 and eight mustered by Sanchez.
The former Barcelona man has adapted to Premier League life quicker
Hazard’s first season yielded just nine top-flight strikes.
Sanchez has delivered a better tally already and he has five games of his maiden campaign remaining.
Based on this, it stands to reason the 26-year-old will be in for an even better season next time around.
Sanchez is more versatile
Hazard has played a staggering 39 matches anchored on the left wing this season, with his first foray off the flank being in Chelsea’s goalless draw at the Emirates last time out, which lasted just 45 minutes before being reverted.
Unlike the Belgian, Sanchez is a peg capable of slotting into any hole across the final third.
While the bulk of his appearances have been from the left, he has been equally effective on the right and centrally this season.
