The Chilean sensation spearheaded Arsenal’s unbeaten run throughout April, where the Gunners won three and drew three of their Premier League fixtures last month to leapfrog Manchester City to third spot in the current standings.

The 27-year-old, who has scored 16 goals in all competitions for Arsenal so far this term, netted in four consecutive league outings in April – finding the back of the net five times.

Sanchez firstly opened the scoring against Watford at the Emirates Stadium inside four minutes in the hosts’ comfortable 4-0 win, before setting up Alex Iwobi’s contribution shortly before half-time.

In the next encounter; away at top-four chasing West Ham United, the former FC Barcelona forward got on the scoresheet once again in a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Boleyn Ground – their last visit to that specific ground before the Hammers move into their Olympic Stadium this summer.

Next up, the Chile international headed home Arsenal’s only goal of the game against Crystal Palace at the Emirates on April 17, although Yannick Bolasie netted a late equaliser to eventually deny Arsene Wenger’s side all three points.

And finally; Sanchez scored both goals in the Gunners’ 2-0 victory over West Brom just four days later, helping his side move three points clear of Man City in fourth, with just two games remaining.
