Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez is gaining in confidence

The Frenchman believes Alexis Sanchez can continue to inspire Arsenal towards a successful end to the season after the Chile forward produced another brilliant display of play in a 3-0 win over Stoke at the Emirates Stadium.

The Chilean star, Sanchez scored twice to help sink the Potters, his first a brilliant individual effort on 33 minutes having earlier set up Laurent Koscielny’s opener to continue his superb form following a 35 million euro summer transfer from Barcelona.

Wenger is in no doubt surrounding the importance of the consistent performances from Arsenal’s star man.

“The better the team plays, the more he is involved in the game,” said Wenger. “We had a very offensive team today and Sanchez is confident. We can be direct with him, you can run at people a bit more, so there is a good combination offensively” he added.


Gaffer Arsene Wenger was happy to see Arsenal produce the required collective display, which was in stark contrast to when they had lost away at Stoke in early December.

He added that It was not a dirty game and he think his side kept it clean because they moved very well and his men didn’t give them any opportunity to get in too many physical challenges.
