Arsenal had too much class for Stoke City today as they edged their way closer to yet another top four finish in the Premier League.

The Gunners have won three games on the bounce as they look to finish the season on a high, and force their way into the Champions League qualification places. They currently trail Liverpool by just one point, but given the Reds’ stuttering form, the north-Londoners may yet reel them in.

Much of the Gunners’ revival has been down to the form of Alexis Sanchez. While the Chilean forward has come in for some criticism throughout the year, he has dug them out of a hole time and time again.

Today, he scored his 50th Premier League goal for Arsenal, and in doing so he has become the third-quickest player to achieve the feat for the club.

His goal and assist today in the victory over Stoke also puts him into the lead for scoring involvements this season.

The £30million-odd that Arsenal coughed up for him in 2014 can definitely be seen as a smart investment.

Although this has been a disappointing season to date, the next three games could see them qualify for the Champions League and win the FA Cup, which would make a strong case for Arsene Wenger to stay on.
