Sanchez pleased to be playing alongside one Arsenal teammate

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he enjoys playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates Stadium.

Lacazette has scored four Premier League goals since moving to the Gunners for a club-record fee during the summer transfer window.

Sanchez, however, is yet to score in five Premier League appearances this season after a stop-start last few weeks.

The Chilean is widely expected to leave Arsenal either in January or next summer as his contract comes to an end, but the attacker has at least revealed that he likes operating alongside Lacazette in the final third of the field.

Sanchez told Arsenal Player:

“The two of us work well together. He’s an excellent player. I believe we have [a good understanding].

“We haven’t played that many games together but when we have, I like how he plays. He finds space and understands the game well. He is very talented.”

Arsenal will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they visit struggling Everton on Sunday afternoon.

A return of 13 points from eight matches has left Arsene Wenger’s side down in seventh position in the Premier League table.
