As Arsenal made another step closer to a top-four finish with a win over West Ham United on Sunday, one former Gunner in Alexis Sanchez was watching on.

Granit Xhaka posted on his Instagram page after the game to say: “Three BIG points – now we prepare for the next one”

In response, Alexis commented “Gunners” along with clapping emojis.

Though the comment itself is relatively mundane, it’s not often we see Alexis talking about his old club nowadays. Ever since his move to Manchester United, there’s been animosity between the Arsenal fans (and even some players) and the winger.

Those negative feelings have somewhat cooled as the 33-year-old flopped in Manchester before finding his feet further afield with Inter Milan.

That’s likely not enough to repair the relationship completely, but perhaps a supportive message or two from the player could help.

Alexis has his own fond memories of the London Stadium, having scored a hat-trick on his first appearance there. That 5-1 win, in which he also provided an assist, had to be one of his best days in an Arsenal shirt.

Sunday’s performance wasn’t quite on that level, but the win could prove far more important in the final standings.
