Arsenal & Alexis Sanchez
The Gunners started the new Premier League season winning a 7-goal thriller on Friday night against Leicester.
After taking a second minute lead through Alexandre Lacazette, Arsenal twice fell behind before they claimed all three points.
Jamie Vardy scored a brace for the Foxes, but second half subs Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud turned the match for Arsenal.
The Gunners claimed the win while Alexis Sanchez watched on in the stands.

Is Alexis Sanchez joining PSG next season?
There have been rumours this summer that Neymar is keen for Alexis Sanchez to join PSG.
However, once Neymar joined PSG it was thought they would end their interest in the Arsenal attacker.
At this stage, perhaps the more likely option is that Alexis Sanchez is agreeing a move to PSG next summer.
As it stands, if Alexis does not sign a new deal with Arsenal, he can sign for a new club in January 2018.
