Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Alexis Sanchez, believing the Chile international is even better than his first season.
Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona in July of 2014 and scored 25 goals in all competitions last season.
The Chile international endured a slow start to the new campaign, but after netting five goals in his last two EPL matches, Wenger has praised him.
“He has had a bit of a difficult start because he came back late [from the Copa America] and you could see that,” Wenger told the official Arsenal website.
“But now he is back to his level and even better than before.
“His overall game and finishing, contributing and assists is excellent. He works hard for the team and he finishes. His enthusiasm is contagious.
“He always gives you hope that he is going to do something and he always gets defenders on the back foot, provokes and that is top class.”
