Wenger 'not fearful' of January exit for Sanchez

The Bosnian worldwide last started a Premier League clash against Southampton on December 10th.

Arsenal were off the mark first when Alexandre Lacazette's shot forced goalkeeper Julian Speroni into a save that reached only the unmarked Shkodran Mustafi, who tapped-in easily.

Then Sanchez, whose future at Arsenal remains uncertain, demonstrated his world-class talent, first with a thunderous 62nd minute snap shot and then a lovely piece of control and fine finish from Jack Wilshere's long, precise through ball.

Crystal Palace did get a goal back in the final minute of normal time to make the game have an interesting finish, with James Tomkins heading home past Petr Cech.

He will takeover the seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "The election is over, it's time to move on". In his own statement after the results were certified, Moore repeated his charge that the election was "fraudulent".

30' - Kolasinac finds Sanchez, who slides a fine pass into the box for Ozil, arriving with flawless timing; six yards out, he flicks hard, and Speroni does well to save.

Zaha made the point he believed he deserved more protection too vigorously to referee Michael Oliver as they left the pitch at half time and could have been sent off after sarcastically reacting to the match official's decision to show him a yellow card.

Arsenal's silky German Maestro frequently pops up in the number 10 role, drifting behind the striker and pulling strings in between the lines of midfield and attack, meaning that Palace's Serbian stalwart Luka Milivojevic will be the unlucky man facing Ozil come Thursday night.

Then Wilshere, back to something near his best, picked out a delightful over-the-top, quarterback-style pass that Sanchez controlled expertly on his thigh, before sliding the ball past Palace keeper Julian Speroni.
