Sanchez hit 24 Premier League goals last term, his best-ever return, though it wouldn't be enough to stop Arsenal missing out on Champions League football for the first time in 21 years.
Arsene Wenger has spoken about the future of Alexis Sanchez, and it doesn't make for good reading - if you're an Arsenal fan at least. With the suburbs they go south and west.
New signing Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal the lead with a debut goal just two minutes in just before Shinji Okazaki drew level just moments later.
Brighton & Hove Albion even did it three times, first signing Australian keeper Mathew Ryan, then Dutch midfielder Davy Propper and finally Colombian Jose Izquierdo from Club Brugge.
Destination Russia: Claudio Ranieri said that Shinji Okazaki's worldwide exertions meant "he loses his energy" and "isn't the true Shinji" when he returns to England, but with 50 global goals to his name, a third World Cup on the horizon and a season of bench-based relaxation apparently in store for the forward the club's loss could be Japan's gain. He's not going to come back and hurt you.
Sead Kolasinac also had a snapped shot saved by Kasper Schmeichel, but Leicester were looking unsafe on the counterattack and succeeded in taking the lead in the 29th minute.
They have not been helped by Petr Cech, who's also looked panic-stricken at times.
And the visitiors almost had a two goal lead four mintues later after another counter when Okazaki's header flashed inches wide of the post.
The England striker was largely unmarked as he rose to meet Riyad Mahrez's header and directed it inside the back post to put Leicester ahead 3-2. But unlike his counterpart in the Arsenal dugout, the Leicester boss does not have a full-blown injury crisis on his hands ahead of the trip to North London on Friday, with just three players missing from his squad.
However, goals from Danny Welbeck, Ramsey and Giroud secured the win for the home side and took some of the pressure off manager Arsene Wenger.
The Gunners were outfired by all four clubs who finished above them in the table, leaving Wenger ready to break the bank to ensure his side are less reliant on Alexis.style="text-align: center;"
