Alexis Sanchez was offered the chance to miss Sunday’s FA Cup game against Hull at the Emirates.
Playing more minutes than any other outfield player in the Premier League, he decided instead to play the majority of the match, grab an assist, score a great goal and leave with the BBC man of the match award as voted for by the watching public.
They say he’s meant to be exhausted. If he is, then somebody ought to tell him.
Here he is relaxing after the game in a bath full of ice.
