Video: Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez Scores Deflected Free-Kick at Everton

Alexis Sanchez added to his impressive goals tally for the season tonight by scoring a free-kick  at Everton‘s Goodison Park – but he got A LOT of help courtesy of an Ashley Williams deflection.

The Chilean seems to be absolutely loving his new role as the Gunners’ striker, and he pounced again this evening on Merseyside, but Toffees centre-back Williams will not want to see the goal again.

Not only does the ball deflect off him and into the back of the net, but he also gave away the free-kick on the edge of his own box when it seemed as though he could have cleared the ball.

Sanchez’s effort was on target, which means he should be awarded the goal, but he and his team-mates are definitely fortunate to be ahead:

A win tonight takes Arsenal level on points with Premier League leaders Chelsea – could this be their year for league glory?
