Owen Hargreaves reacts to Alexis Sanchez’s display in Arsenal’s 5-1 win at West Ham

Owen Hargreaves hails Alexis Sanchez after Arsenal's 5-1 win over West Ham United on Saturday

Owen Hargreaves hailed Alexis Sanchez as one of the best players in the Premier League after his stunning display in Arsenal’s 5-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday night.

Sanchez set Arsenal on their way at the London Stadium when he fed Mesut Ozil to tap home the opener in the first half.

The Chilean was in inspired form throughout, and he made it 2-0 when he fired home a brilliant second to put Arsenal in control.

Sanchez then netted twice either side of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s fine strike to complete his hat-trick and secure a thumping win for Arsenal.

Speaking during BT Sport‘s coverage of the game, former Manchester United midfielder Hargreaves said: “He was unplayable. It’s been an absolutely incredible performance from Alexis Sanchez. He just gives Arsenal so much. He has everything. What a player he is.

“It’s the best individual performance I’ve seen this season from any player.”

He added: “I don’t think that there’s any doubt that he’s going to finish the season as Arsenal’s number nine.”
