Following the game against QPR many Arsenal fans were eager to know why Alexis Sanchez took the penalty in the match instead of normal penalty taker Santi Cazorla, following on of course from the Chilean international’s miss.

All was restored back to order for yesterday’s match with West Ham that saw the little Spaniard do his job and put away the spot kick.

Wenger was of course keen to shift any blame for the miss on Sanchez saying: ‘Cazorla’s name was on the list, and Alexis accepted it. Look, everyone whose played football has missed a penalty.’
