Alexis Sanchez put a real shift in against Everton this past Saturday afternoon, and late on in the second half he was clearly so in need of a rest that he decided to take a seat with the Everton fans.
A great Arsenal counter-attack looked certain to end in a goal, but a stray pass from Alex Iwobi left Alexis Sanchez chasing the ball toward the corner flag. He failed to keep it in play, and his momentum saw him crash head first into the stands.
The Everton fans helped Alexis up, but he was clearly so shattered that he decided to take a breather and sat down with them.
With the game all but won, Alexis Sanchez has a little rest…

Alexis hasn’t been at his best this season, but even without the huge number of goals he scored last season, he still offers so much to Arsenal. The Chilean gives 110% every single game, and (perhaps unwisely) runs himself into the ground every single game.
He’s got two assists in his last two games, including a great pass to set up Danny Welbeck during Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Everton.
Arsenal transfer news
Arsenal fans will be hoping he’s back to his best next season, as their struggles this season have shown just how badly they miss him.
