Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez put himself back into the race for the Premier League Golden Boot on Tuesday night with his brace against Sunderland in a 2-0 victory.

The win was not only vital for his team and kept them in the race for the Champions League spots, but also rather unexpectedly put him back in the running for the Premier League’s top scorer.

Ironically, the two goals put Sanchez just a goal behind Everton’s Romelu Lukaku on 23 goals. The Toffees forward has struggled for goals of late and has failed to score in his last four Premier League outings.

Arsenal host bottom of the table Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League, in a game the Gunners simply have to win in order to keep alive their Champions League hopes.

Liverpool now have a four-point lead on the Gunners, but Arsene Wenger’s team have a game in hand on the Reds. City are three points ahead of Arsenal having played the same amount of games. Both the Gunners rivals have favourable games.

The much talked-about future of Arsenal star man Alexis Sanchez has been given a major update at the beginning of the week as reports emerge that the Chilean striker has agreed on a move away from the Emirates.

With just over a year remaining in his current deal with the Gunners and a season to forget for his club, Alexis Sanchez has been stalling on a new contract with Arsenal and it is becoming increasingly likely that Sanchez will leave Arsenal at the end of the season.

Will all be forgiven if Arsenal finishes in the fourth-place? 0

Arsenal are back in the hunt again for Champions League football for next season. A 4-1 win at Stoke on Saturday evening kept the Gunners in the running for a place in Europe’s elite competition. A lot hinges on Liverpool’s visit to West Ham later today.

However, the Merseysiders failing to win in the capital will give Arsenal the advantage in the race for a top-four finish this season. The question is will Arsene Wenger and his team be forgiven if the Gunners make the top-four?

Sanchez picks up injury in Stoke win 0

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez limped off after 76 minutes with a thigh injury sustained in Saturday’s 4-1 win away to Stoke City but still impressively scored despite carrying the knock. However, the Chilean international is now a doubt for Tuesday’s visit of Sunderland and could be absent for an important match in the race for top-four spot.

Manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for the forward, citing how he’d previously signalled to be substituted as a result of the knock but ended up scoring before he was eventually withdrawn. “The physios told me he wanted to come off. Alexis is special you know not only because of his talent but he always finds the resources. He has shown again that it’s not about talent but desire too and a fighting spirit,” he said.

Arsenal kept their hopes of Champions League qualification for next season alive with a 4-1 win at Stoke City on Saturday evening.

Arsenal had the first real threat on goal on five minutes, as Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland saved well at the feet of Alexis Sanchez. The referee’s assistant raised the flag anyway, so the effort would not have counted, but nevertheless a good save from the ‘keeper.

The Gunners threatened again on nine minutes. Mesut Ozil floated a corner into the area that Shkodran Mustafi glanced towards goal, only for Butland to tip over the bar superbly.

Stoke City v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

On Saturday evening Arsenal visit Stoke City in a game that could prove vital for the Gunners top four challenge.

Stoke City will head into this game hoping to move into the top half of the Premier League table, as they are currently 13th in the Premier League. The Potters have finished ninth in the past few campaigns and with midtable so congested a fourth consecutive ninth-place finish is not out of the question.

However, Mark Hughes team have been in poor form of late in the Premier League, having won just one of their last nine games in the English top-flight. The Potters have also won just one of their last four games on home soil in the top-flight.
