Elsewhere, Alexis Sanchez says he has no plans of leaving Arsenal anytime soon as he sets his sights on winning the Premier League trophy at the Emirates Stadium.The Chilean international made a come-back to the Gunners squad in Sunday’s London derby against Chelsea after a long layoff with injury.
He was in top form despite the gunners going down 1-0 and having their title ambitions suffer.
According to the Mirror, Sanchez is enjoying himself immensely at Arsenal and remains committed to helping the gunners win their first Premier League title since 2004.
Sanchez cited the unity between players and fans as something impressive and has continued to push the club through lean times. This will certainly be good news to Arsene Wenger and the fans who have been starved off Premier League glory for such a long time.
