Alexis Sanchez trolls Arsenal: The former Arsenal star opened the goalscoring at the Emirates in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Manchester United have been brilliant under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The side is on an eight-game winning run under the Norwegian star.
The side cruised to a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round at the Emirates Stadium.
Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were on the scoresheet for the side as the side extended their winning run under Solskjaer.
The game also saw the return of the Chilean winger to the Emirates for the first time since his transfer from Arsenal to Manchester United. He opened the goalscoring for United in the game and played impressively before being substituted for Anthony Martial in the second half.
After the game, he took to Instagram to celebrate the win and took a funny dig at Arsenal.
Alexis Sanchez trolls Arsenal:
The Chilean winger scored against Arsenal on his return to the Emirates, scoring only his second goal in the season.
Sanchez has often been criticised for his form since joining Manchester United in January last year. The winger had only scored four goals for the side since signing for the club before the game against Arsenal.
After having to sit and watch Alexis scoring back at the Emirates, followed by Lingard moonwalking, listening all the while to Utd fans singing “oh Robin Van Persie” on repeat, I seriously struggle to believe childbirth even comes close to being an Arsenal fan

However, he silenced the fans at Arsenal with an impressive goal from a difficult angle as he beat Petr Cech.
After the game, he posted a funny picture on Instagram which said, “He came back to play the Piano. They faced the music.”
The picture was designed like a movie poster with Sanchez in the middle, and his pet dogs, Atom and Humber on either side.
Here’s the picture which the player posted:

Sanchez is not the first player to take a dig at Arsenal after the game.
Solskjær: “He (Alexis) is really determined to prove his worth and he has been fantastic since I came. His work-rate has been brilliant in training. Unfortunately he’s had the injuries but [the goal against Arsenal] is a big step forward for him.” #mulive [telegraph]

Jesse Lingard posted a picture of himself dancing at the Emirates. However, many fans noticed that Lingard tagged the location as ‘Dancefloor.’
