Arsenal’s 5-1 victory over West Ham featured one of the best individual performances by a player so far this season and fans on social media are certainly not disagreeing with that.
Ahead of Saturday, Arsene Wenger’s men were expected to defeat a weakened Slaven Bilic side to maintain their hopes of remaining in the title race.
However, the manner in which the Gunners’ put West Ham to sword surprised a few, largely because of the performance of in-form striker Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean superstar followed up his two-goal show against Bournemouth last Sunday with another flurry of goals as he scored a 14-minute hat-trick in the second-half.
Again, the goal-scoring form of Sanchez is not what caught people by surprise….it was rather the manner in which he did it.
Here were the reactions of some fans…
Alexis Sanchez is up there with the best players on the planet hope he never leaves our football club #COYG

If money isnt enough to make Sanchez sign a contract. We need to offer him 250k dogs a week imo.

Alexis Sanchez. I've never known a footballer to be the best left winger, AND best striker, in any top league in Europe.

And from the non-Arsenal fans….
Sanchez such a passionate player. Joy to watch someone who cares more about football than money.
