The Arsenal forward lifts the lid on his current mindset ahead of Monday night's FA Cup tie

Alexis Sanchez lifted the lid on his current mindset at Arsenal with an Instagram post on Sunday night ahead of their FA Cup fifth-round clash.

The Gunners forward isn’t expected to feature against Non-League side Sutton United on Monday night after Arsene Wenger started a weakened side in their 5-0 win at Southampton in the previous round.

Sanchez got on the score sheet in Arsenal’s 5-1 defeat against Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

The South American is facing an uncertain future at Arsenal amid protracted contract talks with the north London club about his long-term future.

Sanchez posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption on the photo-sharing app:

“I’m not a “lucky man”, I simply work hard and with dedication to be here today and smile at life .”

Sanchez moved to Arsenal in a big-money deal from La Liga giants Barcelona in the 2014 summer transfer window.

The South American has only won the FA Cup since moving to the Emirates Stadium outfit.
