Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been full of praise for Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez, with the talented South American having endured a gruelling World Cup (summer of 2014), debut season in the Premier League (2014/15) and Copa America (summer of 2015), while being in shape to start for the Gunners in their next league game against Crystal Palace.
Despite a standout debut season that saw him score GOALS, his manager believes the best is yet to come, saying: “He works extremely hard in every single training session to show that he is ready. This season, he knows what is expected from him, and he will do better than last year.”
While boasting incredible stamina, the tolls of the Premier League were evident in the second-half to the season, with Sanchez having endured a goal drought as well as his form dipping for a short period.
“He played 52 or 53 games last season. In March, April, May, you could see he was a bit jaded. But he is still a guy who can make a decision in a game. And once he is out there he gives 100 per cent,” added Wenger.
Alexis Sanchez will be hoping to start against the Eagles this weekend, and is 7/4 to score anytime against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
