Thierry Henry sent a message of congratulations to Arsenal's hat-trick hero on Saturday night
Thierry Henry has taken to social media to heap praise on Alexis Sanchez after his superb hat-trick in Arsenal’s 5-1 win over West Ham United on Saturday.
The Chile international was in fine form as he set up Mesut Ozil’s opener and then scored three times in the second half to add to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s strike.
Sanchez was unsurprisingly named the man of the match as he single-handedly inspired Arsenal to victory and kept them to within three points of Premier League leaders Chelsea.
The forward has now scored 11 goals and made four assists in the Premier League for Arsene Wenger’s men.
And Arsenal’s all-time top goal-scorer Henry was quick to congratulate the Chilean for his fine display at the London Stadium.
Henry posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday evening and wrote the caption: “Congratulations @alexis_officia1 on a superb hat trick today. Me alegro por ti @Arsenal #COYG”
Arsenal now turn their attentions towards their Champions League clash against FC Basel on Tuesday night.
