Alexis Sanchez gave a rare post-match interview after Arsenal beat Bournemouth and said he’s ‘happy’and loving the Premier League.

Linked heavily with a move away because of wage demands that the papers seem to be making up, Alexis has not yet renewed his Arsenal deal causing all sorts of nonsense top be written.

But he sees oblivious to it all, wanting nothing more than to get on the pitch and score.

After grabbing a brace on Sunday, he said, “I am so happy for two goals but the team is mentally strong. The mentality, the Premier League, it’s very difficult, it is more difficult for me, for the team. Number one is Chelsea, City. This is the Premier League, I like [it].

“I am so happy for my friend [Theo], for the team and together, the fans, it’s exciting.

“I’m so happy, I go to my home with my dogs.”

Arsenal’s 3-1 win on Sunday took them to 19 games unbeaten in all competitions although it was their first Premier League win since October 29 [international break makes that stat look worse than it is].

While Arsenal were certainly rattled by Mathieu Debuchy’s substitution and Mike Jones absurd penalty award, they got it together and claimed all three points to stay in touch with the league leaders.
