1 goal, 6 dribbles won: Alexis Sanchez stars for Arsenal v Anderlecht in Champions League

Alexis Sanchez after first goal Arsenal

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez was once again head and shoulders above his teammates in the 3-3 draw with Anderlecht in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Arsenal suffered one of the most dramatic collapses anywhere in Europe this season on Tuesday.

The Gunners were 3-0 up by the hour mark in the Champions League clash against Anderlecht at the Emirates Stadium, but they conceded thrice in the final 30 minutes to draw the encounter 3-3.

Once again for Arsenal, it was Alexis Sanchez who was the best player by a mile.

The Chile international forward, who was signed from Barcelona in the summer transfer window for a reported transfer fee of £35 million, scored a goal, put through Danny Welbeck to win the penalty and set up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the third.

As stats above show, Sanchez was a menace for the Anderlecht defence and caused them all sorts of problem. The 25-year-old won six of the seven dribbles he attempted and had 76 touches of the ball.

However, there were one or two areas in which Sanchez could have done better. Only one of his four shots was on target, while his pass accuracy was 74.5%.

Sanchez has been Arsenal’s best player so far this season, and he was their best again on Tuesday.
