Alexis Sanchez’s return to action was one of the few positives Arsenal could take from their demoralising 1-0 defeat by Chelsea at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Chile international was a second-half substitute as Arsene Wenger’s men failed to click into gear and were beaten by their west London rivals for the second time this season after Per Mertesacker was sent off in the first half.

The loss dealt a significant blow to Arsenal’s title hopes and left them third in the table after having headed into the weekend in top spot.

However, Sanchez cheered himself up on Monday evening by playing with two puppies as Arsenal prepare for their FA Cup clash with Burnley this weekend.

Sanchez posted the pictures above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Atom ❤️ humber son mis master dog 👏
