Alexis Sanchez continued his strong start to his Arsenal career with his third goal in his last four matches across all competitions for Arsenal.
The Chilean attacker has been exactly what Arsene Wenger hoped he would be. He has brought pace, technique, tenacity, and goals to Arsenal's cause already in this young season. His spectacular volley for Arsenal's second goal was the biggest highlight of his Week 4 performance but his tracking back also saw him will a couple of tackles while also winning four fouls and getting a couple of shots on target. A strong all-around performance in fantasy and reality against top competition. Sep 15 - 3:20 PM

Alexis Sanchez scored in a second consecutive match but Arsenal couldn't hold the lead for more than two minutes as they drew 1-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Arsenal continued to look tepid in the attack as they dropped two critical points to newly promoted Leicester City with goals by Alexis Sanchez for the Gunners and Leonardo Ulloa for the home side. The Foxes have been strong in their first three matches since returning to the Premier League but Arsenal should have picked up the three points after dominating possession.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez can be picked up for a bargain price for the match against Leicester.

Withdrawn at half-time against Everton in Week 2, but Sanchez was much improved playing as the main striker in the Champions League victory over Besiktas as he grabbed the goal that took Arsenal through to the group stage. In the absence of the injured Olivier Giroud the Chilean may lead the line again at Leicester and he can be picked up for less than £5million in the Yahoo game.

Alexis Sanchez repaid the majority of his transfer fee when he scored the lone goal of the home and away Champions League qualifying fixture against Besiktas on Wednesday.

It was a nervy time as, for the second time in the two match fixture, Arsenal went down to 10 men as Mathieu Debuchy was sent off for seeing two yellow cards. Before the French international was sent off his fellow new arrival Sanchez scored in first half stoppage time. Sanchez and Debuchy both had chances in the second half to double the lead but neither could convert. After that it was edge-of-seats time as Arsenal defended desperately and eventually saw out a 1-0 win. The theme of the season so far has been "ugly but effective" for Arsenal and that continued today.

Alexis Sanchez's competitive debut for Arsenal was a mixed bag depending on whether you are looking at it in the short term or long term.

Alexis Sanchez scored 9 points in the Yahoo format and 5 points in the PL.com format which are both solid results in the short term. The worry, especially in formats that lean on a lot of secondary statistics like successful crosses, shots on target, etc, is that the big driver of Sanchez's solid fantasy outing was an assist. While he did OK with some of the "phantom point" categories, he also committed five fouls which erased any good from his positive phantom points. That he avoided a yellow card was a bit of a miracle after committing five fouls. Definitely something to keep an eye on in future weeks.

Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, and Calum Chambers all started today's Community Shield match at Wembley although Chambers' inclusion likely has more to do with Per Mertesacker's World Cup recovery.

Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy are projected to be regular starters for Arsene Wenger's side. Young Calum Chambers gets the Community Shield start as well as Per Mertesacker continues to rest and recover after his World Cup-winning summer. Me sit Ozil, Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud were also left out of the squad in an effort to ensure that they are healthy and recovered from their summer exertions.

After starting the pre-season slowly to recover from the World Cup Alexis Sanchez has started his first pre-season match for Arsenal.

For fantasy managers playing the "will he start the season or won't he?" game with players who played into the knockout stages of the World Cup there is significant news on Alexis Sanchez. The new forward started the second match of the Emirates Cup against Monaco on Sunday and with two weeks to go until the season starts it seems likely that he will be a go for his regular season debut. Good news for Gooners and fantasy managers everywhere.
