It just seems to be the way it goes; the opposing keeper has the match of his life whenever the Arsenal comes to play. My hat is off to Forster, stunning stuff. This performance by the English shot stopper made for an extremely frustrating game to watch, but not even he could keep out the absolute class that is Alexis Sanchez. As soon as I saw the ball drop to the Chilean’s feet I let out a sigh of relief. I knew that a second later I would see the ripple of that stubborn Southampton net. I guess buying quality really does make a difference.
This brings me to Alexis; what a player. I love him to bits. Worked his hooped socks off, which we aren't unaccustomed to seeing in his short time here at the Emirates, and inevitably bagged himself another goal. 14 in 22 games is something special. Did anybody else see that no-look pass? Madness. Sanchez is truly proving week in week out to be a true master stroke of a signing from Arsene. His match winning goals actually make up for all the 'Alexis FC' memes floating around. It's almost as if we bought him to score goals for us? Weird. (Sarcasm alert)
