Long before he used to warm the benches at Old Trafford, long before he became one of the highest paid players in the history of football, long before he sported the No.7 jersey for United, there existed a man from another planet. A man with a great zeal for the sport, one who scored goals day in and day out and had lit up the La Liga and the Premier League with FC Barcelona and Arsenal respectively. While United remain hopeful of a Sanchez return, we take a look at the Top 5 goals the man from Chile has scored.
5. Arsenal vs Liverpool, 2014-15 Premier League
This one came against Liverpool on the break. Liverpool-Arsenal clashes are always feisty and this one was no different. Arsenal’s talisman responded to the occasion with a brilliantly taken goal against the run of play. Receiving the ball on the left side of the pitch, where he was positioned, the Chilean cut inside on his favored right foot and powered a shot past Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

4. Atletico Madrid v FC Barcelona, 2013-14 La Liga BBVA
Barcelona was chasing the league title and desperately needed a breakthrough at the Estadio Vincente Calderon against arch-rivals Atletico Madrid. The home team defense, powered by the likes of Diego Godin and Miranda were seemingly impossible to break down before the Barcelona man decided to weave his magic. He shot from an almost impossible angle past Atleti goalie Thibaut Courtois to make it 1-0 for the Catalans.
3. Arsenal v West Ham United, 2016-17 Premier League
In India: Politics & Entertainment
A hattrick to cherish against cross-town rivals West Ham. The Chilean was on his hattrick when the ball was played to him in space. He held off one defender, shimmied the goalkeeper Adrian of West Ham and scored a delicate chip to make it 4-1 on the night and the 3rd to his name.

2. FC Barcelona v Real Madrid, 2013-14 La Liga BBVA
Probably the goal that Barca fans remember him by, this one came at the end of a wonderful counter-attacking move. Although a Madrid defender was in attendance, he couldn’t stop Sanchez from taking the shot as he measured and chipped a wonderfully lofted shot over Iker Casillas and into the net. A moment of brilliance at the Camp Nou.

1. Arsenal v Manchester City, 2014-15 Premier League
The best of the lot comes against a club that wanted to almost get them on their books just a season later. Sanchez was scoring for Arsenal in the Premier League for fun when this goal came about. Coming on the end of a wonderfully constructed Arsenal attack, Sanchez took a volley from an Aaron Ramsey header that flew into Joe Hart’s and Manchester City’s goal.
