A year ago today we signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, and what a signing it proved to be. The Chilean really hit the ground running in the Premier League, and his tenacity and incredible work-rate mean he is seemingly tailor made for the Premier League.
To celebrate his one year anniversary at Arsenal, we’ve collected a few clips of some of his best goals for the club:
Galatasaray – Champions League
We absolutely dominated the Turkish side both home and away, with Danny Welbeck really stealing the show with his hat-trick. Alexis Sanchez was in fine form as well however, and made Galatasaray’s defence look like amateurs with this goal.
- Arsenal must outmanoeuvre Galatasaray to win race for £2m ‘bargain’ transfer
- Arsenal reportedly set to sign free agent after impressive trial
- Arsenal have ‘concrete interest’ in signing Bayern Munich II star
Southampton – Capital One Cup
We were hugely confident at the start of the season, but this disappointing loss against Southampton dented that confidence somewhat.
Alexis tried to singlehandedly drag us over the line with this stunning free-kick, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough.
Despite the loss however, this game was a demonstration of what the former La Liga star was capable of.
