Arsene Wenger praises Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal go fifth in Premier League

Arsene Wenger praises Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal go fifth in Premier League

Arsenal kept their top-four hopes alive with a comfortable 2-0 victory at St Mary's on Wednesday night.

Sanchez collected a pass from Mesut Ozil and sent two defenders sprawling to the ground before switching directions and slotting a composed left-footed finish past Fraser Forster.

The Chilean has now scored 20 Premier League goals for Arsenal this season, and what a way to do it.

Subsequently, Olivier Giroud emerged from the bench to double his side's lead in the 83rd minute and take Arsenal fifth in the table.

"Giroud came on and the second goal was very important for us, too", Wenger added.

The Gunners are three points outside the Champions League qualification places with three games of the season remaining, and first up in the crucial run-in comes a trip to Stoke City, a club who have developed a notable rivalry with Wenger's side during their Premier League stay.

With that in mind, Wenger may be tempted to recall Arsenal stalwart Laurent Koscielny, who missed the Southampton game through injury.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "This is the toughest game of their run-in, but I also think Arsene Wenger's side will win in Stoke - the scene of a protest against him at the train station in December 2014".

"He's very good in a small space and once he has the ball in the box he's unsafe". He's creative, not phased by anything, and he surprised everyone in the stadium tonight with his goal.

Wenger was forced into a change as the impressive Oxlade-Chamberlain went off with what appeared to be a hamstring issue - Hector Bellerin on in his place. It's a good opportunity to show your character, how you come back and how you recover.

Hunnam has what it takes to become a major movie star and I think this movie proves it, but nearly no one else agrees with me. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.

"[Koscielny has] got a small chance", said Wenger.

With the nature of the EPL being physically tough, Wenger stated it will be hard for teams involved in European tournaments and that he is eager to see how league leaders Chelsea respond next season.

"We can not find the good clinical edge", said beaten manager Claude Puel. So could we see Arsene wanting to dodge another curse in what could be his final game at the Britannia?

Arsenal will be facing a Stoke side with just one win from their last nine games, yet Stoke manager Mark Hughes is confident his players will rise to the occasion. "Every time we play good quality football with chances but without the clinical edge and it's harsh on the players".
