Alexis Sanchez didn’t score against Stoke City but he created the most chances out of anyone else on the pitch.

The Chilean created five chances, with one setting Alex Iwobi up for his 69th-minute goal, which put Arsenal 3-1 up.

To say the forward is in fine form would be an understatement.

Joint top goalscorer alongside Chelsea’s Diego Costa (11), the forward is probably our most valuable player at the moment.


On top of creating five chances, Alexis won three out of four of the tackles he went into. Second only to Stoke’s Marc Muniesa (4/6).

When it came to taking shots, Alexis was oddly quiet, attempting just three. None of which were on target. However, his work rate pays off even if he’s not directly scoring.

Arsenal won 3-1, allowing Arsene Wenger to even substitute the 27-year-old in the 78th minute in order to give Olivier Giroud, who’s just returned from tweaking his hamstring, a much-needed run out.
