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.

Sanchez volleyed home a terrific goal in traffic as Arsenal settled for a 3-3 draw against Anderlecht Tuesday night.

The same problems plague the Gunners in Europe as they do in the Premiership. That iffy back line is the Achilles heel for the North Londoners and it reared its ugly head again, blowing a three-goal lead.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he was surprised at how quickly Sanchez has settled into the style of English football, reports the Daily Mail.

Sanchez has 10 goals to his credit, including two against Burnley. The fast-paced and physical Premier League can often challenge foreign players, but it hasn't taken long for Sanchez to begin making an impact.
