Amid all the problems at Arsenal this season, the punters propping up the bar are dreading the likely summer links they’ll have to deal with in regards to Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean superstar will soon be entering the final 12 months of his deal in north London and, if the Gunners don’t qualify for the Champions League, will reportedly look to leave the club.
Part of what makes him such a popular figure amongst our north London locals here in the bar is his all-action energy and will to win, something evident in a funny training ground clip to have been posted online.
As Arsene Wenger’s side prepare for the visit of Everton on Sunday, the former Barcelona man faced the rather unenviable task of trying to get the ball off his teammates.
Funnily enough, while he’s used to harassing and embarrassing defenders with his sublime skill, Sanchez is actually nutmegged by one.

Indeed, Gabriel (who hasn’t always convinced at centre-back) manages to nip the ball between his legs during the training ground exercise, much to the Chilean’s annoyance.
