Arsenal fans were worried on Thursday morning as they fretted about Alexis Sanchez’s mental health after he appeared to see an alien posing as a footballer at the Emirates in the Champions League.

It wasn’t really an alien. It Carl jenkinson, who was in the side as a replacement for Hector Bellerin. In the same way a bus replacement is not the same as getting the train, Jenks struggled to impress.

While basically sound, the gap between his level and that of Hector was Grand Canyonesque as we looked at in his player focus.

He put in five crosses against PSG and found nobody with any of them (worth noting as we all climb onboard the Jenks bashmobile that Gibbs put in three crosses and found nobody either):
