Gary Lineker hails sensational Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez after United mauling

The former England international has had his say on the Arsenal forward after his two-goal haul against Manchester United.

Former Tottenham Hotspur player Gary Lineker has had his say on Alexis Sanchez after the Chile international scored two quick-fire goals against Manchester United this weekend.

Sanchez was integral in an unbelievable period of play early in the first half which saw Arsenal go 3-0 up inside the first 20 minutes, with German international Mesut Ozil scoring the other goal.

Sanchez had a poor start to the season and had to wait patiently for his first goal, but he broke his duck in dramatic fashion last weekend with a hat-trick against Leicester City, and having scored in the Champions League last week he got himself a brace against United.

Lineker knows a thing or two about scoring goals having netted 67 times for Tottenham and 238 times in total during his illustrious club career.

But when it came to speaking about the Arsenal superstar he kept it short and sweet.

Writing on Twitter during the match, the Match of the Day host said, “Alexis Sanchez is a sensational footballer; blindingly obvious tweet.”

Arsenal went on to win the match 3-0, making an emphatic statement just before the international break.
