Sanchez was initially in Arsenal's starting XI for Saturday's Premier League match against Aston Villa, but he was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before kickoff. Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed after the match that Sanchez was simply being rested and that he was "completely available."

While it's good news that there was no injury, fantasy owners were surely steaming after the late change. Arsenal will face Southampton in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, a match Sanchez will probably rest for as well. If that's the case, his next opportunity to play comes next Saturday against Tottenham.

Sanchez scored the winning goal in Arsenal's 1-0 win over Besiktas on Wednesday.

The goal, scored during first half stoppage time, helped the Gunners qualify for the Champions League group stages. Sanchez is locked into a crucial role with Arsenal, and will be counted on even more now that Olivier Giroud (leg) has been ruled out long term. The Gunners will be away to Leicester City this weekend.

Alexis' free kick in first-half stoppage time was headed home by Laurent Koscielny during Arsenal's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Alexis got the start in his first Premier League match for the Gunners after coming over from La Liga side Barcelona this summer. He has the ability to be one of the more dominant midfielders in fantasy Premier League this season, and he'll get a chance to partner with Mesut Ozil next weekend in a huge match against Everton at Goodison Park.

Sanchez was introduced as the newest Gunner on Thursday, agreeing to terms on a four-year, 30 million contract, The Telegraph reports. Sanchez made a total of 88 appearances for Barcelona, his previous club, scoring 39 goals during three seasons in Spain.

Sanchez is very much in his prime at age 25, and he's the most gifted offensive player at the Emirates since Robin van Persie departed two years ago. Expectations will be high for Sanchez in his Premier League debut, and they should be.
