Alexis Sanchez proves his worth

Yesterday night, Arsenal made a 17th successive qualification to the CL. It was a laborious win against a well-organized Besiktas side but the Wenger boys scrapped through.

In all truth, it was a nervy entertaining match especially after the sending off of Debuchy in the later stages of the match. More nerves were evident when the referee waved away two penalty claims from Besiktas.

Former arsenal defender Martin Keown described the match as a nerve wracking encounter. Speaking to BBC Radio he said, "As an Arsenal fan, my heart was in my mouth a few times. The Jack Wilshere penalty claim was 100% a penalty for Besiktas.’’

However, despite the pressure and nerves, one Alexis Sanchez scored a fine goal against the run of play towards the end of the first half.
