Alexis Sanchez produces unbelievable finish in Watford warm-up

Is there anything Alexis Sanchez can not do with a football? The Chilean has been in fine form for the Gunners in recent weeks and continued his run with the opening goal in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Watford.

That strike at Vicarage Road took his tally to ten goals in his last six appearances for club and country. 

It is widely accepted that any success the Emirates club have this season will heavily involve the former Barcelona man, who has been a revelation since making the switch from the Camp Nou. And on current form, who can argue with that statement?

While Sanchez showed his class with another stunning performance against the Hornets, his antics before the game have been attracting attention on social media.

A video posted by an Arsenal fan has been doing the rounds on Twitter, showing the 26-year-old practicing his shooting before Saturday evening's game.

Sanchez, standing at the edge of the box, curled a sumptuous right-footed shot into the top corner, that left the goalkeeper with absolutely no chance. 

The Arsenal man evidently took that shooting form into the game as he opened the scoring for the north London club after 62 minutes, smashing the ball in off the upright - leaving Heurelho Gomes helpless.

Having scooped the PFA Fans' Player of the Year award last season, it would appear he is well on the way to go one better and take the PFA Player of the Year trophy, currently held by Eden Hazard.

Sanchez would more than likely sacrifice all personal awards if it meant getting his hands on the Premier League trophy, but on current form it would appear Arsenal will be well in the mix at the end of this campaign.
