Arsenal’s £32 million summer signing Alexis Sanchez may be looking at Danny Welbeck with jealous eyes after his own appearances for the Chilean national side during the international break saw him miss the target terribly with an easy opportunity.
With Welbeck starring for England in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland, scoring two goals while playing in a central role, Sanchez will have been hoping to impress to the same extent. With misses like this, Arsenal fans can’t be happy.
One swallow does not make a summer, however, and Sanchez is a talented player who has already made an impact at Arsenal. His direct running has added a new dimension to Arsene Wenger’s side, and it will be incredibly interesting to see him link up with the newly confident Welbeck when Premier League football returns this weekend.
Even so, Arsenal fans and Wenger himself will be hoping for better finishing when the action returns to England.
