Arsenal crushed Everton 5-2 at Goodison to banish the demons of last week’s capitulation against Watford in fine fashion. Central to their attacking impetus was Alexis Sanchez who once again provided the spark for the Gunners.
One moment in the game highlighted the Chilean’s prowess as he chased down a long ball under pressure from a recovering defender. With his back to supporting teammates, Sanchez took a sublime touch and continued the attack with a perfectly weighted no-look pass in the path of the on-rushing attacker.
He could have been forgiven for holding the ball citing lack of manoeuvring space, yet the winger demonstrated why his presence is extremely imperative if Arsenal are to return to Champions League glory.
A field day in the end for the Gunners, who were terrific in front of goal and showed grit and determination to mount a resurgence after going behind early in the match.
