There was some strange competition on the TV last night. Some thing called the ‘Champions League’. Can’t say I’ve ever heard of it.

I'm surprised by the lack of speculation around his future. All the attention is on Sanchez, and Ozil is in a similar contract situation.

Over the course of the summer people have probably called Alexis Sanchez many things.
