The Chile international has impressed when called upon by Conte, though he has failed to find a consistent place in the starting XI this season.
After victory over Sassuolo, Conte remarked last night: "Lautaro and Lukaku are doing very well but I would also like to underline Sanchez's tests: at this moment he deserves much more.
"I'm honest and I say he was in trouble, now he's back to being a very important player and I said it to him too. I praise his spirit, he is an important element and I want to give him praise because he deserves it.
"He is ready to play from the start, during the match and today he deserved the goal."
