Alexis Sanchez Joins the Red Devils

After the longest winter transfer saga (and last summer to be fair), Alexis Sanchez is now a member of Manchester United.

The price that was paid to Arsenal was actually non-exist and we got a player-swap which actually is the only cool thing about this entire long and drawn out story. Henrikh Mkhitaryan heads over to Arsenal as the two player straight up swapped places. Alexis is obviously the prize here as he is one of the best players in the Premier League but he was leaving in the summer regardless so this was not a huge loss for Arsenal. Of course, the Gunners completely mismanaged the situation but to get Mkhitaryan isn’t the worst runner up prize.

Alexis is Champion League eligible and looks to boost Man United into a successful season.

Office Lock of the Day 1/3

Finally a loss on the office lock. Can’t be perfect in betting — just not possible. 5 wins in 6 games isn’t bad so we are going to bounce back in the new year.

Arsenal vs Chelsea -0 (-122)

Taking the draw no bet for the off chance that Chelsea isn’t able to put one in the night. Arsenal is at home but are missing a few key players due to injury (Ramsay, Giroud, Ozil) and Chelsea are on form and just bagged in 5 against a decent Stoke team over the weekend. I see this being a 1 goal victory for Chelsea in a low-scoring affair, despite being at Emirates. Take Chelsea with the DNB for some cover if they draw.
