Inter made it two wins in a row after the disappointing draw against Sassuolo, and in emphatic fashion too as they destroyed Brescia 6-0 at San Siro, with six different players on the scoresheet.

One of those players was Alexis Sanchez, who also recorded two assists on the night as he did his chances of earning a permanent move to the Nerazzurri no harm.

What was Sanchez's overall display like?

📷 Match Snapshot

Romelu Lukaku was rested for Inter against the worst team in Serie A, allowing Sanchez the opportunity to impress.

The Chilean looked eager to impress, too, appearing sharp on the ball from the opening whistle.

A ⏱️ 5' Indeed, it took just five minutes for him to assist the opening goal of the match, bursting down the right wing before picking out a teasing cross to the back post for Ashley Young to fire a volley into the bottom right corner.

⚽ ⏱️ 20' Despite more senior Inter players featuring on the pitch, he was given the opportunity for a confidence boost from the penalty spot. He made no mistake, and fired the spotkick into the bottom left corner.

The Chilean would play a vital part in the third goal, too, spinning sharply with his back to goal before once again finding Young, who would in turn clip a cross to the back post for Danilo D'Ambrosio to head home.

A ⏱️ 52' His second assist of the day would come seven minutes after the break after he whipped a cracking free-kick to the front post for Roberto Gagliardiini to emphatically bullet a header into the corner.

He enjoyed six touches inside the Brescia box, and sent five successful crosses into the area, in what was probably one of the highlight performances of his Inter career so far.

〽️ Rating Week-on-Week

✔️ IMPROVEMENT

Sanchez was only given 21 minutes off the bench against Parma at the weekend, when he recorded a 6.2 FC Rating.

His longer playing time, albeit against by far the worst team in the league, allowed him to score and set up a further two goals, boosting him to a 8.7 FC Rating

What Next?

Unless Juventus have a cataclysmic collapse at the top of the table, Inter are effectively out of the race for the Scudetto.

That should provide them with the opportunity to give more playing time to Sanchez as the Chilean aims to impress enough that the hierarchy will consider making his loan move from Manchester United permanent.
