Alexis Sanchez has proved a massive hit with the Arsenal faithful so far since his £35m move from Barcelona this summer, for his relentless attacking displays, and his, erm, constantly animated face.

The Chilean seemingly has far more control over the ball than he does his face, as this gallery (bellow) shows.

The 25-year-old has scored in each of his last three matches for Arsenal, his latest goal a stunning volley against Manchester City in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. His strike made it 2-1 to the Gunners with 16 minutes remaining, but Martin Demichelis equalised nine minutes later.

In total, Sanchez has scored three goals in seven appearances for Arsenal, and is expected to feature for the club in their Champions League tie at Borussia Dortmund tomorrow night.

Arsenal also added Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina, Calum Chambers, and Danny Welbeck to their ranks this summer.
