Alexis Sanchez scored a fine goal to help Chile beat Brazil

Published 1 Comments

It seems Alexis Sanchez is well and truly back. The Arsenal star had a slow start to the season but has found the back of the net in his last three games in all competitions for the Gunners.

The Chilean has scored five goals in his last three matches, including doubles against Leicester City and Manchester United. 

He was on target once again last night as Chile beat Brazil 2-0 in the opening game of their 2018 Word Cup qualification campaign.

Eduardo Vargas had given the Copa America champions the lead before Sanchez wrapped up the win two minutes from time to give Chile their first win against Brazil in 15 years.

His goal was yet another example of why he is one of the most feared attackers in the Premier League.

He picked the ball up close to half-way before skipping past Marcelo, playing a one-two with Arturo Vidal, and putting the ball in the back of the net.


The return to form of the 26-year-old will be music to the ears of Arsenal fans. The Gunners currently sit second in the table and have serious hopes of ending their long wait for a league title.

If the north London club are to end their 12-year drought then the form of the Chilean will be a pivot part of their success.

However, the most pressing concern for Arsene Wenger's men will be their future in the Champions League. 

Sitting bottom of their group ahead of a double-header against Bayern Munich, their chances look bleak. However, with a player like Sanchez in their ranks, there is always hope - regardless of how slim.

Can Arsenal overcome Bayern Munich to keep their Champions League hopes alive? Have your say in the comments section below!
