Suffering from a Sánchez-shortage? Suffer no more...

The diminutive Chilean has been laid low by a nagging hamstring problem, causing him to miss our last five matches. Although we've won four of them, it's hard to ignore how much of a spark he might have provided in that fifth one, and I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to see him back on the pitch as soon as possible he's fit. To learn that he'll miss the Newcastle match might feel like a cruel absention, the kind of post-New Year's resolution to display more discretion than valour  than in years past. With the Energizer bunny that is Alexis Sánchez, waiting one more week might indeed be wise even if it leaves us wishing he were back. We'll have to wait at least one more week. To tide you over as you tighten your belts, then, feast on of this impressive highlight-reel/biopic: Alexis Sánchez: The Movie.
