Alexis Sanchez is loving life in England.
And boy does it show!
Setting the league on fire after arriving in the summer, Sanchez has grabbed 19 goals and 10 assists as well as a place in the hearts of Arsenal fans the globe over.
Speaking to Arsenal.com, the Chilean striker spoke about what his first season has been like so far and his impressions of football in England.
“My spell here [has been] a really positive one.
“I like the city a lot and I feel really comfortable at the club. Supporters here are very cheerful and enlivening, which is a very nice thing. My team-mates are really kind, too. My goal now is to take Arsenal as high as possible.
“I’m well adapted to the country and the league – I must keep on learning, though. I want to expand my knowledge of English football in general and Arsenal and my team-mates in particular, but overall I love this league. At the end of the day, football was invented in this country, right? I live where football was invented. That makes me really happy.
“Here in Premier League you can get beaten 3-0 by a team lying at the bottom of the table. It is not an unusual thing in English football. That is why any prediction ahead of the game may be very deceptive.
“Regardless of how good or bad the team you play against is, you can feel that there’s a huge crowd and pressure everywhere you go. I really like that.”
Alexis will look to extend his goal scoring record against West Ham on Saturday when they arrive at the Emirates.
A sure starter despite the fact that he’s probably needed a break for around three months, we can count on him to lead the charge as Arsenal hunt down second in the league from Manchester City.
