Alexis Sanchez might have added another ‘0’ to the weekly wage amount he’ll be offered this year, simply for a moment that was really rather special.
The Chilean kept Arsenal’s title challenge alive thanks to a 98th minute panenka penalty, which saw Arsenal snatch all of the points from Burnley.
It was a game that on reflection should’ve been a walk in the park for Wenger’s men, but two late decisions from Jon Moss saw the Emirates Stadium erupt into a sea of noise.
As you can imagine, Twitter went equally mental when Alexis tucked home the winner, and we’ve sorted through some of the best responses! Enjoy…
Only Alexis Sanchez would panenka a 97th minute penalty. Such supreme confidence and arrogance. Closest we’ll ever get to Thierry Henry.

Wish I had as much confidence as Alexis Sanchez when taking a penalty in the 96th minute of a must win and then to do a Panenka.

To have the ability to score a Panenka to win Copa America and potentially a very decisive game is unreal. Arsenal don’t deserve Sánchez.
