Arsenal bounced back from their 2-0 defeat at Southampton with arguably their best performance of the season on Sunday, beating less than friendly rivals Stoke City 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
Alexis Sanchez added another two goals to his tally for the season and further underlined why he should perhaps be considered the signing of the season.
The Chilean has fired 18 goals for the Gunners in all competitions this season and is the main reason why they have managed to climb up to fifth in the Premier League table.
The target of a top four finish is looking more likely after this weekend’s action, especially with rivals Tottenham and Manchester United both suffering defeats.
And with Sanchez in the kind of form he is in at the moment, Arsene Wenger will feel confident anything can happen in the cup competitions – esepcially if he is able to add some quality additions this month.
They will have to be more in the mould of Sanchez however than these five transfer failures we have identified from yesteryear.
