Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez seems a likeable character, constantly smiling and working hard for the team. The Chilean showed his rather devilish side however, pranking Santi Cazorla before the game against Swansea this past Monday night.
As the team entered the stadium on their way to the dressing room, Cazorla placed his suitcase in the corridor as he went to embrace former Villarreal teammate Jefferson Montero.
Busy catching up in their native tongue, Alexis exchanges a quick handshake with Montero before taking Cazorla’s suitcase with him whilst the Spaniard wasn’t paying attention.

The little magician eventually notices his possession is missing and momentarily looks rather confused, before heading towards the dressing room and catching our Chilean sensation in the act.
The camaraderie and team spirit we see in the squad is arguably the strongest we’ve witnessed, which makes it understandable when new signings describe the atmosphere behind the scenes as ‘like a family’ (via Arsenal.com).

This squad is close to achieving something special, and we can only hope that Arsene Wenger recognises that by adding the needed ingredients which will push us towards the top of the league.
