Alexis Sanchez looked to be in a pensive mood as he flew back to London on Saturday night.

The Arsenal attacker had been in Barcelona to appear at a court case for tax fraud but headed back to the UK on Saturday ahead of Arsenal’s FA Cup clash with Sutton United on Monday night.

Sanchez has been one of Arsenal’s standout performers this season and jetted off to Spain in the wake of the Gunners’ humiliating 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

It remains to be seen whether Sanchez will feature for Arsenal as Arsene Wenger looks to navigate his side into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Sanchez posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday night and wrote the caption: “🏡🐶🐶❤🙇🏻..”
