Alexis Sánchez is enjoying some great form right now – having grabbed two goals and provided the passes for two others in the team’s last couple of league games against Mallorca and Zaragoza. The Chilean is now the team’s third highest provider alongside Cesc, with 10 assists behind Iniesta and Messi, with the Spanish midfielder on 18 and the World number One on 15.

5 in the league, 4 in Europe and 1 in the Cup

The man who has benefited most from Alexis’ assists has been Leo Messi, who has scored from 6 chances laid on by the Chilean, with Cesc (2 – against Mallorca), Alba (1 –against AC Milan) and Thiago (1- against Zaragoza) scoring from the others. Alexis has provided 5 assists in the league, 4 in Europe and 1 in the Cup. The figures are especially notable because Alexis has played just 2,214 minutes compared to Messi’s 3,870, Iniesta’s 2,928 or Cesc’s 2,682.

Seven goals so far

As well as his seven assists, Alexis has also chipped in with seven goals so far this season – against Benfica, Cordoba (2), Getafe, Deportivo and Mallorca (2), to take his total since he arrived at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2012 to 22 in 79 games.
