Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring a free kick against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal's big-money summer signing Alexis Sanchez tonight scored a cracking first-half goal to further demonstrate his class.

After being awarded an early free-kick in the third-round tie at the Emirates Stadium, the Chilean international scored with a pinpoint 30 yard free that nestled in the top corner.

The first-half goal opened the scoring in their Capital One Cup match against Southampton, though goals from Dusan Tadic and Nathaniel Clyne gave the away side the lead at the interval.
