London - Alexis Sanchez cut a frustrated figure as Arsenal were held to a 3-3 draw after staging a dramatic fightback from a three-goal deficit at Dean Court on Tuesday night.

The Gunners staged a dramatic fightback after goals by Charlie Daniels, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser put the home side ahead by three goals with Sanchez the catalyst when he scored with Arsenal's first shot on target.

Lucas Perez and Olivier Giroud then completed a dramatic come-back to claim a point for Arsene Wenger's men that still however sees them move further away from leaders Chelsea in the title race.

Arsenal who are known to typically suffer a dip in form at this time of the season and with tough fixtures approaching look to be continuing this trend after being disappointingly held at Bournemouth.

Sanchez, who alongside Mesut Ozil is in talks to extend his stay at the London-based club cut a frustrated figure as he lambasted his team-mates for their poor display.

It has raised concerns of whether the Chilean will remain at the Emirates Stadium when the January transfer window comes to a close at the end of the month.

He argued with Aaron Ramsey and threw a tantrum at the below-par performance of his team who are constantly accused of lacking mental strength at key moments in the season.

At the final whistle the Chilean seemed livid with the disappointing result and threw his gloves to the ground in disgust before storming off the pitch without shaking the opposition's hand.

The attacker has proved invaluable to Arsenal and has often this season carried the team with his goals and assists as stats show that Arsenal are close to being a one-man team.
