Sanchez has now scored six goals in three games and the Chilean's latest endeavours helped Arsenal recover from the shock of their 3-2 home defeat by Olympiakos in the Champions League last Tuesday. He scored with a sixth-minute back-heel and Mesut Ozil slotted home from Theo Walcott's cut-back a minute later before Sanchez's 18-yard thunderbolt completed the scoring in the 19th minute.

Victory took Arsenal into second, above United on goal difference and two points below leaders Manchester City, who crushed bottom club Newcastle United 6-1 on Saturday in a game that saw Sergio Aguero score five goals.
