EPL: Alexis Sanchez scores twice as Arsenal defeat Crystal Palace

The Arsenal midfielder politely answered everything asked of him in his post-match interview after Arsenal's dramatic 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace on Thursday night but he has clearly grown exhausted of answering the same old questions every time he shows glimpses of what he's capable of.

Andros Townsend, a former Tottenham Hotspur player, levelled the match five minutes after the restart, however, a quick-fire brace from Alexis Sanchez ensured Arsenal would head back to North London with the three points.

Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on their London rivals Crystal Palace in the Premier League tonight.

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.

The Gunners will bid to banish memories of their last trip to Selhurst Park, when a 3-0 defeat landed a telling blow to their Champions League hopes and heaped further pressure on Wenger. A goal on Wednesday evening would likely help the prospects of the want-away attacker who has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City or PSG in the January transfer window. Palace remain one point off the drop zone.

Sanchez's excellence prompted the inevitable question to Wenger afterwards about whether he was fearful of losing the Chilean, especially with the striker's contract expiring at the end of the season.

On the performance against Palace, Wenger added: "Overall it was a convincing win even though in the second half it was harder than the first", Wenger told Sky Sports. "We suffered a bit but for the biggest part of the game we played well".

Wilshere, who is reportedly close to agreeing fresh terms, completed his fourth consecutive Premier League game after initially starting the season as a Europa League fringe player.

Wilfried Zaha was particularly sharp for the Eagles, setting up Yohan Cabaye for the first real chance, while Calum Chambers was perhaps lucky to escape punishment for handball on the edge of the area.
