Alexis Sanchez is evidently enjoying some creature comforts as he looks to guide Chile to a first Copa America trophy on home soil.

And clearly the Arsenal forward is enjoying his time at home as he shared an Instagram post captioned “moments of joy at home”. In the video Sanchez lip-synchs and dances along to Spanish language hip-hop.

And he brought out all the classic moves for the video, including the “eyes on you”, “can’t touch this” and a solid 180-degree spin. It may not be as spectacular as his FA Cup Final goal but with lip-syncing skills like this, there could be a place for the Chilean on Ru Paul’s Drag Race if football doesn’t work out.

Sanchez has shown off his musical skills before with a piano performance of John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ but he has rarely shown off the sort of moves previously associated with Per Mertesacker.

Don’t believe us? See the Gunners’ parody of ‘Return of the Mac’ for proof.
