The England midfielder was excellent in the 3-0 win against Stoke City.
Arsenal gained some revenge against Stoke City this weekend, with a comfortable 3-0 win at The Emirates. One thing for sure, is that there is absolutely no mistaking who the best player on the pitch was today.
Alexis Sanchez has been absolutely formidable since arriving from Barcelona in a £35 million deal in the summer. He set up Laurent Koscielny for the opening goal and also scored the next two for The Gunners, as he continued his excellent start to life in England.
But Alexis' performance was a given. At the moment he performs like that nearly every week.
But there was an abundance of top performances from Arsenal today that also deserve a mention.
Tomas Rosicky was superb in midfield. He seems to have found an extra yard of pace in recent times and is looking an integral part of the first-team.
Santi Cazorla continued his recent spell of good form while Koscielny was also excellent at the back.
But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain deserves a mention.
The England international was dynamic in possession, always looking to get beyond his opponent and was also excellent tracking back.
He is an often under-rated performer but always puts in his excellent work-rate and level of performance for Arsenal.
It was a performance that, despite the overshadowing brilliance of Alexis, gained plenty of attention on Twitter...
Oxlade's had an excellent game— AD (@aki_dwd619) January 11, 2015
It's just the final ball or shot for Oxlade-Chamberlain that let's him down. Everything to get him into that position is excellent.— James Patterson (@jameespatterson) January 11, 2015
Cazorla has been superb today. As was Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been replaced by Walcott.— Byron la Hoe (@ByronLaHoe) January 11, 2015
If Oxlade-chamberlain could put more his chances away he would be world class #afc— Jason Bernier (@JB28striker) January 11, 2015
Oxlade-Chamberlain is a proper baller— GH (@greghunter4_) January 11, 2015
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been one of our best players all season, fearless when running with the ball #Baller— Rhys Wertheim (@R_W_1_5) January 11, 2015
Walcott shouldn't start for us in the next month as long as Oxlade Chamberlain keeps up his form— - (@cjacobbb) January 11, 2015
Oxlade Chamberlain has been one of big (few!) positives of season. Also good to see Cazorla back to best and Rosicky rolling back years"— Umeh Winter (@Winterbonter007) January 11, 2015
Alexis, understandably, gets all the plaudits, but Oxlade-Chamberlain is performing week in week out as well. Such a dynamic player— JRGJ (@JackRGJohnson) January 11, 2015
Bar Sanchez, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has been a star this season, he's done so so well for us this season, Theo will bench for him— A guy in Harare (@sam24lm) January 11, 2015
