Can Alexis make it 7 in a row for Arsenal v Man United?

Alexis Sanchez was the last Arsenal player in action during this current international break. And although the former Barcelona forward could not inspire his Chile international team mates to a victory over Uruguay in Santiago, he did score another goal.

That makes it six games in a row for club and country that Alexis has found the back of the net. With his doubles against Sunderland and Burnley, the 25-year old has bagged eight goals in those six games and for a player that does not even play as the main central striker, it just shows you how good Alexis is and the fantastic form he has found since swapping La Liga for the English Premier League.

The Chilean will certainly be our go to man when Man United come to town on Saturday, so could Alexis make it a super seven games in a row? I would not bet against him, especially with our visitors having the sort of injury crisis that we normally associate with the Gunners.

Arsenal do have our own injury problems of course, mainly on the defensive side of things so the chances of this being a 0-0 draw are very slim. And the fact that United have lost their defensive midfielder Daley Blind should mean that Alexis gets even more freedom to get at the United back line and that will hopefully spell goals.

Alexis needs just two goals to reach double figures in the Premier League and it would be from just 10 starts. And that would be the best start to an Arsenal career that any player, including the likes of Henry, Bergkamp and Wright, had ever enjoyed.

    Please help. Is there another name for a one man band other than a solo artist?

    i have no worries over ALexis, then i have slight worries over the rest of the team, but i worry most over WENGER and the seLfish BOARD …….

  5. cheeterspotter says:

    Team game first and foremost.
    Don’t care who scores of

  6. cheeterspotter says:

    As it looks like we’ll have 3+goalkeepers why not fire Into southampton for Clyne. He looks the real deal to me.

    In order for Sanchez to shine the rest of the team have to put in a shift aswell. We all saw what happened in the Anderlect (sp) game, 3 up and our players went to bed.

    The funny thing is even with 11 players out with injury for Man U, there fans are feeling more confident than Arsenal fans who will be at home and may field a better 11 on the day, how far my team has fallen. Man U fans cant even remember how defeat to Arsenal feels like anymore.

    Its time the team paid us back for our patience and loyalty.

    The red devil has to be gunned down at the Emirates come Sunday, “In Arsenal I trust” and not some old French guy!!!

    Any result can happen Saturday they have just as many good players as we do.

    people should get ready for articles like bad day at the office..poor tactics and Wenger out after Saturday game….

    we failed to beat Man Utd last season…and fans still dont learn their lesson…

    players like RVP and Falcao they guarantee goals….

      Yes i agree.
      Di Maria on his day can win you a game singlehandedly. So can Mata.
      Have you seen the small Belgian dcik? Adnan Januzaj. On his day he can score 5 goals alone.
      And Luke “CAFU” Shaw? I am sh*tting my pant as I typing it.

      LvG alone on the stands is a spectacle worth paying a grand. I am sure if he shouts at his players they can score 10+ goals.

      Rooney is in the form of his life. I expect him to get a hat trick. And the mighty Fellani? I wish we bought his last year. He is a breast. Sorry beast. Exactly what we need.

      P.S.- Word of caution, I hope Ryan Giggs doesn’t call you brother. If he does, lock your wife away till he leaves.

          Not this time. Against their defence, we can score goals atleast. The question is to win the game.

        2. Sumo says:

          Yeah but why don’t you mention the circumstances?

          One was after Liverpool and Dortmund away and the other was after a 5-1 belting from Liverpool.

          But i agree. We were piss poor last year. Based of last years results alone, ManU should be just awarded the win and leave us in peace.

          Smelling is one of the best defenders in the world. He will have Sanchez, Welbeck, Walcott, in his pocket. Smelling.

    Its not if or when, its how many

  11. rick says:

    Do we ever win the big games?? Who was the last big side we beat?? My guess bayern away.

    1. Robin Vanpayslip says:

      Manure aren’t a big side

      1. rick says:

        They took 4 points off of us last season though and they are better this year. How many seasons since we last beat them?

  12. Jogon says:

    Hahaha. If we are struggling against Hull city, Swansea, Leicester, how are we going to beat united?I see a draw or or loss

  13. fred cowardly says:

    We don’t need Sanchez. We should trade him to United for Smalling and Fellaini as we need defender and midfielder
