Hull City loanee Chuba Akpom reacts to Alexis Sanchez screamer on Twitter

The Arsenal talent was impressed with the Chilean's second effort.

Arsenal produced a scintillating counter-attacking display against Manchester United this afternoon to defeat the Red Devils 3-0 at The Emirates and end a tough week on a high.

The result was impressively led by the performance of Alexis Sanchez. After a difficult start to the season, due mainly to his recovery from Copa America action, he has come good in recent weeks and scored two tremendous goals.

First he flicked in a low cross from the right in consummate style before going on a driving run that ended with a rasping drive into David De Gea’s top corner.

It was a great performance and Arsenal fans are undoubtedly buzzing to see the old Sanchez is back.

It is not just the fans, even Arsenal players got involved in the Sanchez love on Twitter.

Chuba Akpom is currently on loan at Hull City but he is still keeping close tabs on all things Arsenal.

He sent out this tweet soon after he hit his second goal…

Akpom will no doubt be dreaming of one day playing regularly alongside Alexis at Arsenal. Until then, he can carry on watching with awe.
