    The debate over Özil's legacy and comparisons to Cazorla got me wondering, who do you guys consider to be the best player since the club moved to the Emirates? Even though it hasn't resulted in a league title we've seen some record setting individual seasons from the likes of RVP (11/12) and Özil (15/16).

    Interested to see how people view some of these players.

    I mean it's Fabregas let's be really honest about it. Van Persie 2nd, Alexis 3rd.

    Was going to put Kos in the poll but I know he divides opinion on here.

    Argue Sagna was our most consistent player of the Emirates era.

    We have at least three usernames with Özil in it. I would be disappointed if not.

    He played his best football at Highbury.

    Van Persie or Cesc.. they always made me smile on the pitch. The latter edges it for me since he wasn't injured as much.

    I voted for Fabregas. Seems pretty clear to me. There were a couple of years where he was just magical.

    RVP could be there,but he had too many injuries.Think that he didn't play a lot from 2008 to 2010.

    2011/12 was just great.He made difference all the time.

    RVP was the best at his peak, Alexis likely the most impactful and consistent (and not far off from RVP's best year, for several in a row), and Özil had the most pure talent.

    Depends how you slice it, but would probably lean Alexis.

    Has to be Cesc. At his peak with us he was arguably the best CM in the world, and definitely the best not named Xavi or Iniesta.

    Hard to pick between the rest in that list. RvP and Alexis both hit crazy heights, but they were short-lived for different reasons. Özil has been consistently good to great over 5+ seasons and achieved the most being a key part of all three FA Cup-winning teams, and Santi probably had more pure footballing ability and versatility than all of them (and would have been a part of all three cup teams if not for injury).

    Cesc or Alexis for me.

    Both were the heartbeat of the team for a while.

    Cesc for me. Hope his Arsenal story is not over yet.
