Sanchez had two goals and an assist during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday. He took four shots, with three on goal, made five key passes, had five successful dribbles and put in six crosses during the match.

Sanchez was easily the man of the match, putting in one of the best performances of the season. He now leads the Premier League in combined goals and assists (18), and it's clear Arsenal wouldn't be close to the top-four in the table without him. Up next is a very tough Sunday matchup against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Sanchez had a goal and an assist, and a yellow card, in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Hull City in FA Cup play. He fired seven shots for the evening, with four of them on target.

Sanchez was the dominant player on the pitch, as he so often is. He's been used at a heavy rate thus far by Arsene Wenger, but with just two matches scheduled for the remainder of the month, a break is coming.

Sanchez had a goal and and assist in Friday's 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Sanchez didn't make a great effort on an early penalty kick, but he made amends with a first-half goal and a brilliant second-half assist. He remains Arsenal's top scorer, and one of the best offensive threats in the EPL. It will be interesting to see when he's rested, as the Gunners have kept him in heavy rotation and the current schedule is thickly settled.

Sanchez registered two assists in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Newcastle United.

The midweek rest probably served Sanchez well, and while he didn't score any of Arsenal's four goals, he was engaged and effective for the entire evening (among other things, he drew six Newcastle fouls). Sanchez has been worth every penny the Gunners spent on him.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed after Saturday's loss to Stoke City that Sanchez, who had an assist in the match, will be rested for Tuesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray.

Sanchez has been far and away Arsenal's best player this season, but he's also been heavily used of late. Wenger mentioned earlier this week that he'll have to rest Sanchez before he suffers an injury, so he'll take the opportunity Tuesday, with Danny Welbeck possibly moving back into the starting XI after being used as a sub against Stoke.

Sanchez scored the match-winner in the 89th minute of Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Southampton on Wednesday.

Southampton went down to 10 men just minutes earlier thanks to an injury to centreback Tony Alderweireld (they had used all three subs) and Arsenal finally broke through after peppering the net all day. Sanchez now has nine goals and two assists on the season, with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero the only player with more combined goals and assists in the Prem.

Sanchez curled home a sublime effort in the 57th minute of Wednesday’s 2-0 win against Dortmund in the Champions League.

Sanchez received the ball from Santi Cazorla and shot from fully 20 yards to give the visiting keeper Roman Weidenfeller no chance. Sanchez has scored three times in the Champions League so far this season and the strike confirmed the Gunners’ place in the round of 16.

Sanchez had the lone Arsenal goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss at Swansea. He also picked up a yellow card.

Make it six goals in four games for the unstoppable Sanchez. If you want a larger sample, he's scored eight goals (and added two assist) over his last eight appearances. Imagine what Sanchez might be able to do when some of his talented teammates return to the first unit.
