Alexis Sanchez has made some serious waves with his performances on the pitch for Arsenal, showing just why Arsene Wenger paid all that money to get him to the Emirates from Barcelona. And now, Sanchez showed his extravagant skills off the pitch as well, playing the piano with some flair and panache as he serenaded Lukas Podolski with a Richard Marx favourite.

Podolski, the joker in the Arsenal team, was given a proper wooing lesson by Sanchez, who jumped on to that piano during the club Christmas party and played "Right Here Waiting for You" with some style.

The entire Arsenal team were out in full swing, suited and booted for the Christmas party as the players let off some positive steam after another disappointing result at the weekend in the English Premier League, when they conceded a last-minute goal to allow Liverpool to take a point.

While the players might be struggling to string together positive results, one thing that cannot be denied about this Arsenal side is the camaraderie between the players, and the only thing that remains is for Wenger to push that injury wave out of sight and head towards a safer pasture filled with three points in every game.

Arsenal play Queens Park Rangers in their next game in the English Premier League, and Wenger's men will hope to give their home support at the Emirates some festive cheer with an authoritative performance.

With barely a chance to pause for breath, the Gunners will then visit high-flying West Ham on Sunday, before ringing in the New Year with a clash against Southampton at St. Mary's.

Arsenal are currently in sixth place with 27 points from 17 matches, four behind fourth-placed West Ham and a further point adrift of Manchester United in third.

Wenger has called on his team to make these festive fixtures count and a nice little win over Queens Park Rangers will be a good start.
