Nacho Monreal was quick to congratulate Alexis Sanchez on his hat-trick against West Ham on Saturday.

The Chilean was on fire for Arsenal during the 5-1 win, which saw Arsenal climb to within three points of Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.

Left-back Monreal also had a decent match, which was great to see. The Spain international has found it hard to hit his stride this season and considering how he’s usually Mr. Consistent, it was a little concerning.

Good performance yesterday and congratulations to @alexis_officia1 for his hat trick ⚽️⚽️⚽️@arsenal

Against the Hammers, he appears to have shaken off whatever cobwebs he was carrying around and, in the first half, was one of Arsenal’s stand out players.

Long may it continue!
