Alexis Sanchez backs ‘great’ Arsenal to win the  Premier League

19/11/16

Alexis Sanchez believes Arsenal are playing like champions and will finish top this season.

Arsenal are unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening day of the season and will go top of the table by winning their lunchtime kick-off at Manchester United today.

Arsene Wenger’s side have not lifted the trophy for 12 years but Sanchez senses a vast improvement in this squad.

Sanchez said: “We’re playing with a mentality that we want to win everything and become champions. 

“We are taking it step by step in terms of our fixtures and ambition but we are not conceding many goals. That is a good place to be.

“We have more desire to achieve something big by winning the Premier League. We have a great side, we are very ambitious and we want to win the title.”

Wenger was due to decide today whether Sanchez, who is the club’s leading scorer in the top flight this  season with six goals, will start at Old Trafford, having returned from international duty with Chile on Thursday.
