Arsene Wenger full of praise for Alexis Sanchez after win over Saints


Arsene Wenger was full of praise for Alexis Sanchez following Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Southampton on Wednesday.

The victory came by virtue of Sanchez’ 89th minute strike when he swept home Aaron Ramsey’s cross following commotion in the box. It was the right place at the right time for Sanchez, a theme that seems to be popping up quite a bit this season.

“Alexis is one of the players who had to dig deep, but he still had such desire to fight,” the Arsenal boss said. “He always finds something special to get a goal.

“It’s difficult to find examples of someone who has settled at a club so quickly. He arrived in July and now it’s December. When you look at the number of goals he has and the impact he has on the team, it’s fabulous.”
