Gary Neville reacts to Alexis Sanchez’s display in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw at West Brom
Gary Neville hails Alexis Sanchez after Arsenal's 1-1 draw with West Brom at The Hawthorns on Sunday
Gary Neville hailed Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal’s best player after the Chilean scored in the frustrating 1-1 draw with West Brom on Sunday.
After a goalless first half at The Hawthorns, it looked as if Sanchez had handed the Gunners all three points when he fired in a free-kick in the 83rd minute.
However, West Brom netted an equaliser three minutes later when Calum Chambers was penalised for hand-ball in the area and Jay Rodriguez dispatched the penalty.
It ended up being a frustrating afternoon for Arsene Wenger’s men and former Manchester United defender Neville hailed Sanchez after his free-kick.
Speaking during Sky Sports‘ coverage of the game, Neville said: “He’s been Arsenal’s best player, the most dangerous.
“The wall didn’t look right to me. He’s had one sighting from that position Sanchez [and he made it count].”
The result left Arsenal in fifth place in the Premier League table and facing an uphill struggle to qualify for the Champions League this term.
The north London side will look to get back to winning ways in the top flight when they take on Chelsea at The Emirates on Wednesday night.
Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign and they finished fifth last season as they missed out on Champions League qualification.
