Seven notable things from the Premier League’s midweek round of fixtures…
7) Arsenal’s Sanchez Reliance Is Becoming Dangerous
Despite Fraser Forster’s best efforts, Alexis Sanchez eventually broke the deadlock at the Emirates Stadium, scoring Arsenal’s 7th late goal of the season to win them the three points. These late goals are all well and good, proving the Gunners are fit and motivated to the death, but the addiction to last minute winners, especially those scored by Sanchez, is not a healthy one.
Arsenal should be looking to dominate whole games, not late nick them late on. Should the Chilean pick up an injury and those three points picked up at the end of games turn into one, things won’t be looking good at the Emirates.
