Alexis Sanchez has sounded a positive note going into the new year by saying he believes Arsenal have the quality to win trophies.
The Chilean expressed his happiness at his increasing importance to the team this season, and says he’s focused on making fans happy by bringing silverware to the club.
Speaking to the official site, he said, “I definitely feel like an important player and my teammates let me know every day.
“I try to prove that I am an important player every day and game after game. I believe we have the players and the quality to win many things.
“I feel really happy and comfortable at the club. I want to give the fans a new title. We always get our fans’ support in the thin and the thick, which is great.
“We must win the Premier League or the Champions League for them.”
The Gunners sit 9 points behind leaders Chelsea and could go into tomorrow’s game against Palace 12 back if the leaders win their game at home to Stoke today.
With Sam Allardyce likely to defend deep, Arsenal will need Alexis at his best to find a way through.
Love this guy. We can only take him on face value and he’s saying all the right things and playing with full commitment…. please, please sign it you little champion!!
January 1, 2017: Sanchez pens down a new deal at Arsenal Football Club
January 2, 2017: Cancer is cured
We absolutely can compete. I would like to see Arsene be more flexible and not use the 4-2-3-1 all the time though. Maybe a 4-3-3 in games we play without Ozil.
The fact that people are more focused on the upcoming match rather than the transfer window opening says it all really.
Unless we can sign somebody of Ozil/Sanchez level can’t really see how we can improve
Santi has left a hole, but hopefully he isn’t finished yet
The most obvious way to improve would be to replace the manager!
Doesn’t sound like a guy who wants out.
hopefully we can match his sporting aspirations.
I actually think that if we beat Bayern we could go on to win the champions league.
Come on You Gunners!!!

Seriously hoping its ox dropping a hint about them all signing.
It looks like they are all going to join hands and go skipping up the field
I would hope so too, but it’s Twitter, it could just as easily be a young man trying to ride the stardom of his immediate role-models.
I’m fine with both either way. Happy 2017 (soon).
I doubt OX has any knowledge of their contracts. I think he just picked a picture of what he thinks partly represents Arsenal. I think it’s more him saying “I’m not going anywhere” than anything else
That’s really really nice to see from Alexis. He always stays out of all the media side of things which is good when compared to a blabber mouth like Theo but when he does speak it’s all the more nice to hear. I feared that he’s disillusioned with the team and its competitiveness. It’s good to hear a bit of a rallying cry from our best player. Let’s hope we win things and tie him down on a good contract soon!
The teams are required to do media talks, and Theo is frequently asked to because he is composed and well spoken. He frequently speaks with few revelations because that is exactly what the club wants to avoid showboating and controversy in the media. He’s doing his job well and I don’t understand what the point of criticizing him is.
All us here, on the other hand, are spouting our opinions when nobody asked for them. That’s fine of course. it’s entertaining.
Then sign! Pleaseeeeee
Through thin & thick we love Alexis.
* we’re not going to win the league though.
That’s a winning attitude given we are barely half way through.
If our players thought like that we would not have come back to win and FA cup having gone 3 goals down.
Chelsea are on a strong run. We need to just do our own thing and keep up. City dropped today so we have opportunity to slowly claw back closer to Liverpool first. Its still a long way to go. With regard formation, I think much of this is frankly moot. It doesn’t matter whether its 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 because once the match starts the formation is flexible and morphs according to opposition strength and weakness. For example when playing against an entrenched team like WBA, we were more a 3-4-3. Granit moved back into a triangle with the two Cbacks,… Read more »
Well that sets it. He’s got the ambition in the right place, and at the right club. I’d be boosted by another big signing this year – if only to announce to Alexis, Ozil and everyone else that The Arsenal are serious about being contenders!
Alexis:«I want us to win the league or CL, now»
Arsene:«We have to focuse on the next match, and try to improve game by game»
Two different ways of projecting to future.
Let’s see what tomorrow brings…Wenger has called on spectacular football in 2017. COYG!
Love alexis has the heart of a roy keane and the skill of augero hope he stays
Go Sanchez go, we need a win tonight
