Sanchez scored a goal on three shots (three on target), tallied an assist and drew a penalty in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Watford.

Sanchez was every bit the world-class centre forward manager Arsene Wenger said he could be. In the ninth minute, he drew a penalty that led to the first goal of the match. On 40 minutes, he found the end of a Theo Walcott cross and managed it past the line for the second goal and played an inch-perfect cross to Mesut Ozil six minutes later for the third goal of the match. With Olivier Giroud returning, Sanchez will likely slip back out wide, but finally showed how to put his industry and work rate to good use as the high man up the pitch.

Alexis Sanchez: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alexis started at forward and recorded just one shot attempt during Sunday's 4-3 loss to Liverpool.

One would expect Alexis to have much more of an impact in such a high-scoring match, but he struggled to connect with teammates and did not look overly comfortable in his role. His status for Sunday'a match was in question after he suffered an ankle injury during Chile's Copa America title run earlier this summer, and he appeared to be at less than 100 percent physically. Arsenal could field a stronger side next week versus Leicester, allowing Alexis to return to his familiar position on the wing where he should be more effective.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sanchez has been included in the starting XI for Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Sanchez's role in Sunday's match was in doubt with an ankle injury, but he has passed a late fitness test and will feature as Arsenal's lone striker.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alexis (ankle) is questionable to play on Sunday against Liverpool, ESPN FC reports.

Alexis returned to training last week after overcoming an ankle injury he suffered at the end of Copa America, and while he has not trained nearly as much as his teammates, he may be forced into action, as Arsenal will be without Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud as they extend their holiday after the European Championship.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arsenal are keeping close tabs on an ankle injury suffered by Sanchez that could force him to miss the start of the season, reports the Daily Mail.

Sanchez injured his ankle while on duty at the Copa America tournament with Chile this summer. He has been receiving treatment, but Arsenal are concerned that the issue may force him to miss the team's opening match against Liverpool in August.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sanchez started all six games for Chile during Copa America Centenario, tallying three goals on 18 shots (12 on target), two assists, 17 fouls drawn and one yellow card on 12 fouls earning the Golden Ball award for best player of the tournament. He takes his international record to 34 goals in 101 caps. Chile are Copa America champions again defending last year's title after a second consecutive penalty shoot-out final win over Argentina.

Sanchez experienced a small statistical dip last season from his debut campaign with Arsenal. Nevertheless, the 27-year-old forward enjoyed another prolific campaign boasting a high fantasy upside for the Gunners. He finished the season with 13 goals, four assists and an average of 3.6 shots per game in 30 Premier League appearances (28 starts) and totaled 20 scores and nine assists in 49 appearances across all competitions for club and country.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chile's offense has been on fire the last couple matches and Sanchez is at the head of the attack, scoring once and assisting on two others in their 7-0 win over Mexico on Saturday.

Chile will have another tough matchup with Colombia next, but betting against this offense doesn't seem wise at the moment. Chile have scored 11 goals in their last two matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alexis put in eight crosses, attempted three shots and scored a brace in Tuesday's win over Panama.

The forward failed to find the net in either of his first two Copa America appearances, but he broke through with a smashing half-volley to put Chile up by two before salting the game away with a late header after Panama got one back. Alexis' resurgence was an excellent sign for Chile as they move on to face Mexico Saturday as the knockout phase commences.
