All Arsenal fans are hoping to see our superstar striker Alexis Sanchez back in the squad to face Chelsea today, and it is looking likely even if he only comes on from the bench. There have been a few dodgy Arsenal rumours saying that the Chilean may be open to moving on in the near future, but Alexis has decided to pledge his loyalty openly to stop the whispers.
“I am very happy at Arsenal and I’m not thinking about leaving,” said Sanchez.“The unity here between fans, club and players is enormous and the supporters have been fantastic. We suffer the defeats and enjoy the victories together.
“This campaign we are demonstrating that we are serious candidates for the Premier League title. I think there can be no doubt about our credentials to be champions this time.”
“It’s true that we have lost important points that could have given us a bigger advantage in the table, but, overall, we are having a very good season.
“The spirit between the players is sensational and, when we do suffer a blow, we are able to overcome it. That’s very important.
“I am always ambitious in football and I still want to win three titles this season – the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League. It will not be easy but we can do it.”
That is a very clear statement from Sanchez, and perfectly timed to give his team-mates a boost ahead of our crucial game against Chelsea today. I love that he has the ambition to win everything and we know he will do his utmost to achieve it too. With him and Petr Cech’s desire to win everything, and Ozil’s desire to be the best in the world we cannot help to believe that this team can achieve great things….
Onwards and Upwards!
