Wenger: Sanchez Is Getting Better In Central Role

share on:

Arsene Wenger has praised Alexis Sanchez’s form in a central forward role and believes the Chilean keeps improving with every game.

The forward was on hand to assist Theo Walcott in scoring a brace in the 2-0 win over Basel.

Sanchez’s move into a central position has helped Arsenal, and Wenger likes what he has seen from the 27-year-old

“At the moment he looks like he has the ingredients to do very well there,” Wenger said on the club’s official website.

“He’s getting stronger in every single game.”

Arsenal’s win sees them sitting top of Group A with four points, ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.

Wenger was unwilling to suggest his side were capable of winning the Champions League, but is happy with their progress.

“It looks like the team has interesting potential. We have to be ambitious and, as you know, keep our feet on the ground to continue to develop,” he said.

“We know exactly how we want to play football and we have to continue to stick to that and get better at it.

“That demands big focus and some leadership inside the squad. It also requires humility.”

After four straight wins in all competitions, Arsenal are in action again on Sunday when they visit Burnley in the Premier League.
