"Alexis es Alexis, un jugador excepcional" — Arsene Wenger

Una larga jornada se vivió en Londres por la primera fecha del grupo H en la Europa League.

Unos 20.000 seguidores alemanes viajaron, según la prensa británica, cuando apenas se habían concedido 3.000 plazas para el FC Colonia.

Milan puso en marcha su campaña en la competencia con un contundente triunfo por 5-1 sobre Viena. A los 9′ el colombiano John Córdoba capturó un mal rechazo de un adelantado portero David Ospina y sacó un espectacular tiro con arco desguarnecido para celebrar.

Le llevó al Arsenal 40 minutos para responder.

"Alexis todavía está luchando para volver a su mejor estado físico, pero Sánchez es Sánchez, un futbolista excepcional", señaló el estratega francés, que espera que el nivel del chileno siga creciendo.

Y en ese contexto, el técnico del conjunto londinense, Arsene Wenger, elogió el reencuentro con las redes del formado en Cobreloa. "Colonia anotó un estupendo gol". En la segunda mitad, Alexis cobró vida. El portugués completó su hat trick en el segundo tiempo.

El portugués André Silva fue el héroe con un triplete. Wenger le está cumpliendo lo de la temporada pasada: ser el estelar en competencias europeas.

The Sun: "El astro de Alexis Sánchez rescata la victoria en la Europa League con un golazo para Arsenal".

El Arsenal arrancó entonces sumando tres puntos, en un grupo que comparte con BATE Borisov, Estrella Roja y Colonia.
