We examine Alexis Sanchezs importance to Arsenal ahead of their Super Sunday clash with Premier League leaders Leicester City... Leicester will not be looking forward to another meeting with Alexis Sanchez. The Chileans brilliant hat-trick inspired Arsenal to their emphatic 5-2 win at the King Power Stadium in September, and he will be central to their hopes of closing the gap on Claudio Ranieiris side on Sunday.Sanchezs goals that afternoon were his first of the season after an eight-game scoreless run, and Arsene Wenger declared him back at his best in his post-match press conference. The Arsenal manager was vindicated as the 27-year-old embarked on a run of 10 goals in six games for club and country, including a double in the Gunners 3-0 win over Manchester United. Alexis Sanchez scored his first Arsenal hat-trick against Leicester The season has taken plenty of twists and turns since then, but there are parallels between the two encounters for Sanchez, who is once again bidding to rediscover his best form. He did find the net in Arsenals recent FA Cup win over Burnley, but has gone eight league games without scoring - a drought punctuated by a two-month injury lay-off between November and January. Arsenal to outfox them? The story of Arsenals 5-2 win over leaders Leicester in September. Can they repeat it? Sanchez struggled to make an impact in Arsenals 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, but there have been encouraging signs since he returned to the side with a lively cameo in their 1-0 defeat by Chelsea on January 24, and Wenger saw his time out as a blessing in disguise after a gruelling summer of Copa America duty with Chile. Alexis Sanchez made his first appearance since November against Chelsea Hes had a long rest now, the Arsenal manager said after Sanchez struck the winning goal against Burnley. When he got injured, you could see signs of fatigue but two months rest I think is a good winter break.The benefits were certainly plain to see against Southampton, who somehow escaped the Emirates Stadium with a goalless draw despite dazzling displays by Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Hes one of the players who is difficult to stop because they have such high qualities, Ronald Koeman said of Sanchez. Hes fast, and technically, hes perfect. Ramsey: Leicester remarkable Arsenal will need to be right on it to slow Leicesters title charge, says Aaron Ramsey. Sanchezs elite technical quality is only half of what he brings. His tireless, all-action playing style rubs off on his team-mates, and Wenger has talked up his leadership, too. Hes a guy who likes big games, and for me that is the most important thing in a big player, he once said. Its a kind of leadership on the pitch. He does not say out of the game: I want to do this, I want to do that, but on the pitch hes a leader.

He is the guy who can change the course of a game, Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry said earlier this season. I love the way he plays. He plays with his heart and I know the fans love that about him. When you have a guy like Alexis Sanchez, it is the X-factor. Sanchez was instrumental in Arsenals win over Leicester earlier in the season It could be argued that Ozil - with his four goals and 16 assists in 23 Premier League appearances - is even more important to Arsenals title aspirations, but he is at his most effective alongside Sanchez. Against Southampton and Bournemouth the duo exchanged more passes than anyone else on the pitch, and it is no coincidence that they were two of Ozils finest displays this season. Its also notable how much the German has improved since Sanchez joined him at the Emirates - and hes not the only one. Were lucky to have Alexis with us - Ive always said that, said Santi Cazorla in November. Hes one of the best players in the world. Playing alongside Alexis is a privilege and its really easy to understand him on the pitch.

He is first for shots and dribbles per game in the Premier League, second for goals scored and third for chances created per game behind Ozil and Cazorla.Sanchezs high-risk style means he also loses possession more frequently than any of his team-mates (18.5 times per game on average), but the rewards speak for themselves. If youre an Arsenal fan, we were all waiting for that type of match-winner, added Henry. City bottom of top-six table But where do Arsenal and Leicester rank? After recharging his batteries and working his way back to full fitness, Arsenal can expect an even greater contribution from Sanchez in the final months of the season. A repeat of his last performance against Leicester would be a perfect way to start.Watch Arsenal v Leicester live on Sky Sports 1HD from 11.30am on Sunday Also See: Arsenal to outfox them?

The BCCI has reaffirmed its commitment to make this past weekends T20 series in the USA an annual event for India, with board president Anurag Thakur calling the series a great success. Thakur also said the BCCI was eager to strengthen its connection with the US market.We need to come, I cant say many times a year, but yes on annual basis we have to be here if we really want to develop a market and want locals to play and participate, not only to watch cricket, Thakur told ESPNcricinfo. We have to play a much much bigger role and India is up and ready to play that big role. BCCI is here to deliver and will make it a big success.I think there needs to be more focus in countries like US, Canada and others where we have a lot of population who is from Asia who understands cricket, could be more involved and can get more locals involved. So we are not here just to play a couple of games.We will come out with a long-term plan after this success, how to make it work in US, how to have more and more local people playing the game of cricket. If they can play in early 18th century, what made cricket go out of America? We have to bring it back. No other country than India can do that.The two T20 internationals in Lauderhill were officially sold-out, though actual attendance figures are yet to be released. Saturdays crowd was near to the 15,000 capacity set for the event while Sundays turnout was smaller and estimated to be close to the 12,000 range. On both days, the crowds were predominantly made up of adult male Indian supporters and few young families in attendance.Ticket prices were steep for the matches, though, ranging from US $75 to $250. When asked if the BCCI would consider lowering them in the future to attract families and first-time fans, Thakur said they needed to meet the expenses for putting on the event to make it financially feasible.When you have got a quality product, you have to pay a good amount, Thakur said. So we promise quality cricket. We are not making enough money out of it. In India we make much more money. Here it is just meeting out the expenses.So the issue is why should India be investing here? Im not just investing here for the sake of money.dddddddddddd Im investing here because I believe as a true leader India should play an important role to make this game more popular. How do you do that? There should be more engagement. How do we do that? If I dont earn, how do I invest? I need to earn and invest at the same time.The two T20Is in Florida were the third high-profile series in the USA in the last year. Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkars Cricket All-Stars tour of New York, Houston and Los Angeles in November was followed by the CPLs maiden visit to Florida in July. The Cricket All-Stars and CPL groups also conducted kids clinics as part of their fan engagement efforts. The BCCI chose not to do anything similar and when asked if they would set up junior clinics on their next visit, Thakur said it was the responsibility of local administrators to get kids playing.I think its very important that the locals should start playing more cricket, quality cricket, and they should have enough facilities available, but that has to be done by the local federation or association board, Thakur said. BCCI can play a role, but cant take the control of American cricket.Thakur also floated the possibility of playing at other venues around the USA in the future, but said the east coast was the most realistic option to satisfy the TV market in India. The matches in Florida started at 10am local time, 7.30pm in India, and playing in Chicago or on the west coast would not be practical with a 7 or 8am start.Thakur also said that they were not sure of returning specifically to the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, the only ICC certified venue in the USA, for their next visit and they would be reluctant to use the Cricket All-Stars model of drop-in pitches at baseball stadiums with unorthodox boundary configurations. Even if it allowed them access to the New York market, Thakur said the objective remained to avoid exhibitions and that cricket should be played not casually but seriously, thus making a traditional stadium important to any plans.
