Arsenal’s goal-scoring god boosted to score first at West Brom
Finding fresh plaudits for Alexis Sanchez is darned tricky, but luckily for Ladbrokes customers, Arsenal’s superstar finding the net certainly is not.
The Chilean forward has made a mockery of the fabled ‘adjustment period’ all foreign footballers arriving in the Premier League must stumble their way through.
Sanchez has been scoring goals by the arctic-lorry load since rocking up in North London, firing 13 in all competitions and a mightily impressive eight in the top flight.
Even more incredible than his insatiable appetite for goals, perhaps, is the fact that of those 13 strikes, seven of those have broken the deadlock.
Roll up, roll up then Ladbrokes customers one and all and get a load of their latest price boost.
As Arsenal make their way up to the Hawthorns for Saturday’s early televised kick-off, the bookies have ramped up Sanchez’s odds out from 3/1 to 4/1 to score first against West Brom.
Fresh from yet another pearler in the Champions League to add to his burgeoning collection, it is hard to believe the 25-year-old was used as a makeweight by former club Barcelona as the Catalans went all out to land Luis Suarez.
Sanchez is now doing a pretty uncanny impression of the Uruguayan at the Emirates.
What is more, the Chile World Cup star has generally been pretty tasty on the road, where he fired first against Swansea last time out, while scoring both goals in a 2-0 win at Sunderland prior to that.
The case is rested there; it’s time for you to make your judgment.
