|Desc||At his best, the Chilean was a blur of relentless running and consistent end product, with his 2016/17 season a particular stand out with 24 goals and 11 assists in the league. Many Arsenal fans won’t remember the forward with fond memories, but with two winning goals in two FA Cup semi-finals, and two goals in two finals, his part in the club’s success cannot be denied|

[Alexis Sanchez speaks about the highs and lows of being a professional footballer] As a footballer, everything you’ve achieved can easily be lost and then you are nobody. That’s just how life is and that’s why you shouldn’t let things get you down. That’s the reason I treat every match like a final. I try to do that in every game – to give 100 per cent.

[Sanchez, who has managed just five goals in 45 appearances for United, has suggested that he could still have a future in England] I’m very happy I went to Manchester United. I’ve always said that. It’s the club that’s won the most in England. When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic - I was happy there - but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something. I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.
