Alexis Sanchez was feeling in a philosophical mood once again on Sunday night...

Alexis Sanchez took to social media to express his philosophical side once again as the Chile international enjoys the international break.

The Arsenal star is currently in action with his country during the first international break of the season before the return of the Premier League next weekend.

And the forward used his Instagram account to post a thoughtful message to his followers, along with a picture of himself inaction for his nation.

Sanchez shared the picture above on the photo-sharing app and wrote: “Neither you, nor I, nor anyone hits harder than life. It doesn’t matter how hard you are hit, but how hard you can hit. And what you hold as you go: you have to keep advancing, THAT’S HOW YOU WIN!”

The Chile international, who also posted another message over the weekend, helped Arsenal secure 1-0 win at Newcastle United in their most recent Premier League outing last weekend.
