Video: Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez makes it 9 in 5 games with Chile brace

Alexis Sanchez Chile

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez can't stop scoring.

Alexis Sanchez can't stop scoring, showing his clinical touch with a brace for Copa America champions Chile.

He ensured his nation's 100 per cent World Cup qualifying record remains, by scoring a brace in a thrilling 4-3 win away to Peru.

Sanchez, who destroyed Manchester United's defence in his last Premier League game, now has nine goals in five matches for club and country in all competitions.

With the game being played in the early hours of Wednesday morning UK time, Arsenal will be hoping Sanchez returns in plenty of time for this weekend's Premier League game.

The Gunners face Watford on Saturday at 5.30pm away from home, and could consider leaving the in form attacker on the bench after his international exploits, with one eye on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich who they face in the Champions League next week.

Yet if fully fit, Arsene Wenger would be a brave man to omit Sanchez on current form, but can take positives that Theo Walcott was rested from England's starting line-up against Lithuania on Monday.
