Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has credited Alexis Sanchez with rediscovering his own scoring touch against Burnley.
After the Gunners’ fourth round FA Cup victory against the Clarets, which sent them to the fifth round, Chambers, as reported by the club’s official website, said that the goal was ‘pretty good’.

I watch [Alexis] in training and took a bit of advice and I thought I’d give it a go. It went into the side netting so it was pretty good.
It was wise advice considering Alexis scored the eventual game-winning goal in the 53rd minute.
As luck would have it, Chambers’ opening goal was the result of a wonderful Alexis pass that went through the legs of Burnley defender Scott Arfield.
My only two goals have come against Burnley.
I actually thought about it yesterday! I thought I might sneak a goal and I did.
It was a splendid shot just outside the penalty area, which he bent just inside the top left corner and out of the reach of Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
I thought we ground out the result. I thought at times we played well but there are things we need to improve on. It is a good result and we are through to the next round.
