Alexis: I will leave everything on the pitch vs Sp*rs

42

Alexis Sanchez says Sunday’s North London derby will be a high-intensity affair and has warned Arsenal that they need to be ‘wise’ to Tottenham’s counter-attacks.

The Gunners come into the game three points ahead of their neighbours, although Mauricio Pochettino’s side are yet to be beaten in the league and have the best defensive record by some margin.

“It’s going to have everything,” Alexis told Arsenal Player ahead of the game.

“It’ll be a high-intensity match with plenty of hustle and bustle. I’ve played them a few times now and the first time I didn’t know what to expect.

“They told me I had to start strong, and I remember I got taken out early on but then told myself that wouldn’t happen again.

“We like to dominate possession and pass the ball around, but we’ll have to be wise to the counter-attack [on Sunday].”

“It’s a game that they [the fans] want to see us win at all costs,” he added. “They’re a massive rival. My team-mates and I will leave everything on the pitch.

“The Arsenal fans are amazing supporters and that really helps me to perform well and want to give them something to celebrate.”

The Chilean has been in fine form this season netting eight goals, including a brace in last weekend’s 4-1 dismantling of Sunderland. With Arsenal level top on points in both the Premier League and their Champions League group, the striker also admits he’s buoyed by the ambition shown by his team-mates on a weekly basis.

“More than the goals [against Sunderland], I was happy for my team-mates,” he told Arsenal Player.

“They’re playing with a real winning mentality and look like they want to win the league.

“We’re taking it game by game but we have a lot of ambition. We hope to keep converting that into goals and I want to keep chipping in.”

Hope one of their idiots (looking at you Wanyama) doesn’t leave Sanchez’ hamstring / thigh / shoulder / eyes on the pitch. They’re very ‘efficient’ at their tactical and rotational fouling yet for some reason never get perceived in the same light as the Stoke / Bolton of years gone past. Dirty bastards.

Just to add facts in a ‘by the numbers sort of way’, of the top 20 most individual fouls last season, they had: Dembele, Alli, Dier and Lamela all in the top 20. And have signed Wanyama and Sissoko who were also in the top 20.

(as a comparison, we had Ramsey who was joint 20th)

I wasn’t sorry to see dembele limp off the field against Leverkusen…

They realized that English refs and commentators arn’t smart enough to figure out rotational fouling.

They got away with it all last season until the game vs Chelsea where the wheels came off and for about 5 minutes the commentariat criticized them for it, treating it like some big fluke…then right back to business as usual.

Dirtiest team in the league at the moment. Poch knows what he’s doing, and it isn’t playing pretty football.

My first and only trip to the Emirates was the 7-1 thrashing of Venkys chicken crew we went 0-1 down but then it got a shit load better and it was capped off nicely with a Thierry Henry goal… Here’s to hoping for something similar mate, enjoy!!!

Cant wait to see what it means when Alexis says he will leave everything on the pitch! It looks like he does that every second of every match. What a huge match this is!

He didn’t say “hustle and bustle”. He said there will be hitting, assaults and fights. What he wanted to say is that tottenham is shit.

Alexis is a relentless fighter whose influence is rubbing off on his teammates. Bring on Sunday! Let’s get the three points.

Also, as Blogs said, Ozil to tear them a new one.

There was an amazing interview with him on the BBC before the last cup final. He’s a really good man, the things he does for his village in Chile are awesome, brings a tear to the eye. Well worth a watch if you can find it.

Lets be honest, Alexis would leave everything on the pitch against the Lyme Regis Octogenarian Ladies B Team, that’s why we love him so.

Hope they play a better game than last november, drew 1-1. Sadly the north London scum was the better team that day, and we need to stronger this time!

Remember this isn’t johan djourou saying we’ll learn from mistakes.

It’s alexis Fucking Sanchez saying we have a winning mentality and will leave everything on the pitch. I believe him.

God, I wish I could go to this game

With regard Granit- It’s not like Viera didn’t get any red cards either. Clearly there is a fine line between the aggression you want on the pitch (the desire not to lose) and discipline. You don’t want to blunt the other bit in a quest to avoid silly reds either.

Besides, too much is made of Granit and yellow cards. Last match, Coquelin got a card for mouthing off…worth noting. Comes with the territory.

Granit is still getting familiar with his surroundings.

He will come to a good balance.

I’m hopeing for 2-0 so that Theo can show the s…. “fans” the score when he gets subbed in the 69th minute… if they stick around for that long ✌️️✊

Why not a 20-0 so Theo can use both hands to show our goals rather than the scoreline…

I say go all in at 21-0 so Theo has to use both hands, both feet and drop trousers to make his point. ?

If we win the league at WHL and Alexis does an Henry sprinting down the home end to fucking rile them up…
I say that would deserve a statue.
