Alexis Sanchez inspires Inter Milan to a 6-0 win over Brescia
Ashley Young, Alexis Sanchez and Christian Eriksen all scored and set up goals as Inter Milan thrashed Brescia to remain third in Serie A.
Young volleyed Inter ahead from a Sanchez cross and the Chilean scored a penalty after Victor Moses was fouled.
Danilo D’Ambrosio headed home a cross from Young and Sanchez’s free-kick was nodded in by Roberto Gagliardini.
Eriksen scrambled home after Romelu Lukaku’s shot was saved and then set up Antonio Candreva for Inter’s sixth.
Sanchez’s loan deal from Manchester United was extended until the end of the season, the clubs announced earlier in the day.
Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan remain third, eight points behind leaders Juventus, with Brescia dropping to bottom spot.
“Sanchez is starting to do well,” said Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte.
“He’s still not the Sanchez I liked in England, but he’s on the right track.
He did well against Parma, coming in with the right attitude.
Today there was great commitment on his part, he played an excellent game.”
However, Brescia slipped to the bottom of the table on 18 points, eight adrift of the safety zone.
Also, they will need a dramatic turnaround in fortunes in their remaining nine games if they are to avoid an immediate return to Serie B.
