Alexis Sanchez, the man with incredible talent and outstanding work rate achieved  the feat of becoming the only footballer to score hattrick in EPL, LA LIGA and SERIE A after, his hat-trick against Leicester City to drive Arsenal to a comfortable 5-2 triumph. Earlier he scored a hat-trick in Italy for Udinese in February 2011, then repeating the same heroics for Barcelona, against Elche in January 2014. Bet you can hardly find such a hardworking footballer. From switching flanks in the attack, press the fullbacks, passing the ball into the channels, to come back and help the defenders – he does everything. The work rate and vision he displays is truly commendable. He scored 28 goals from 60 appearances for Arsenal. Be it through balls, passing, key passes, dribbling or free-kicks, Sanchez is very strong at everything. Sanchez is deployed best when a pass is lifted into space for him or he is allowed to receive and dribble the ball in much deeper positions. With his flip-flap trick, positioning a server on the edge of circle, turn infield with first touch, sprinting down the flanks make him unique.

The start of the season has not been brilliant for him as one can expect after a gruelling Copa America with Chile. He had  highest 33 shots on goal without scoring, many times hitting the woodwork. He was also guilty of going to left instead of cutting into right flank at times. Sanchez has a habit of showing his undies. He split from partner Laia Grassi during last season, with the local tabloid ‘’La Cuarta’’ blaming his poor shifts in bed with her. According to the daily, Sanchez couldn’t stand the pace in bed. If this is true, Arsene Wenger is to blame solely. He gave Sanchez workload of 10 men. How can you blame Sanchez? I  have always got a feeling that his Rugby shorts are not of right size. Yes, Sanchez showed more legs than a teenage girl on instagram, but he also showed more legs to cover the whole ground running. All jokes apart, congrats to the Chilean for achieving this rare thing. Imagine still talking about Sterling, when Alexis Sanchez exists.
