Arsenal played some wonderful football in the lead up to Alexis Sanchez’s goal.
Lets just cut to the chase here, nobody in the Premier League plays football like Arsenal.
Liverpool play Metallica’s greatest hits as they surge forward, United bore teams into making mistakes and Chelsea try to overpower opponents with their physical size, but Arsenal play football.
Every player on the Arsenal team is comfortable with the ball at their feet, and look to keep possession while also probing their opponents defence.
No matter how many players the likes of Sunderland try and put behind the ball, Arsenal always find space through continued movement and fast paced footwork.
The result leaves teams mesmerised in a trance, as they struggle to pick up players who are either looking for possession or identifying space in which to pick up a subsequent pass.
No matter how hard Sunderland pressed, Arsenal’s one touch precision passing left Sanchez one-on-one with his marker in the box, leaving only one possible outcome.
