We looked to be heading into half time with a comfortable 2-0 lead against Liverpool, but Alexis Sanchez wanted a piece of the action before the whistle went.
The Chilean has struggled for goals recently, with just one in his last 12 games. He finished this one with real aplomb however, rifling it in from distance after a vintage Arsenal move.
Hector Bellerin fired a fantastic ball towards the forward line, and it was turned round the corner for our sensational summer signing.
He drove towards goal menacingly, Kolo Toure committing himself and leaving Sanchez with the space to shoot.

The 26-year-old obliged, smashing a venomous shot towards goal. Simon Mignolet flapped at it, but couldn’t react fast enough to prevent the goal.
The goal arguably put the game to bed, with Liverpool sure to struggle to recover from a three goal deficit. Despite a full 45 to come, we were looking home and hosed as we headed into half time.
You could see how much the goal meant to him, as he was ecstatic to be back amongst the goals.
