Alexis Sanchez is in some form. Well, it’s hard to know whether it’s good form or if he really is this good.
He is very, very good as it is, but his recent performances have been remarkable.
His excellent form at the Emirates continued this evening, too, as he put Arsenal ahead with a simply delicious chip in the first half. The Gunners are looking to put themselves in a strong position in Champions League Group A with a win over Ludogorets and Sanchez is currently terrorising the Bulgarian club.
Arsenal’s striking woes have been answered by the magnificent Chilean and he’s a popular lad as a result.
Alexis is just so good in this role right now. Deadly and creative.

Gunnerblog is loving Alexis at centre-forward and that is good enough for us.
Alexis Sanchez with a finish as outrageous as Man City's kit…

Now this really is an enormous shout. Alexis’ chip is stunning, yes, but that Manchester City kit is incomparable.
Stunning finish by Alexis ! Can watch over and over again

This is the glory of being able to pause live TV, isn’t it? Or he’s found a blurry vine of the goal somewhere.
Arsenal are playing like old Arsenal at the moment, but Alexis instigated a lead attacking accomplice Theo Walcott has since doubled. Ludogorets continue to press, but a goal that magical deserves to win a game…
