Arsene Wenger on the win and Alexis Sanchez's fighting qualities


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was a happy man after Saturday's easy win against Burnley in the Premier League.

After a disappointing first 45 minutes, the Gunners kept their focus and produced a vintage second half performance to ease past Sean Dyche's side by three goals to nil.

"We had a strong team pressure and we had to intensify that in the second half, which we did," Wenger said after the game.

"Slowly you could see that the chances were coming and at the end of the day, it became easy when it was 2-0.

"They did very hard and we did make mistakes at the back. Overall I think it was a very satisfying win.

"Recently at home we haven't got the results we wanted but for the confidence of the team it's also important to win without conceding a goal."

Chile's Alexis Sanchez was again the star man in Wenger's team and the Frenchman was full of praise for the 25-year-old.

"The header he [Alexis Sanchez] scored is more the result of determination and desire than doing something special technically.

"He has the attributes of a fighter and of a quality, talent player. That's what you want to see in every football player.

"Since he's played through the middle he looks more goal dangerous.

"Now it looks to me that he's really dangerous through the centre of the pitch because he's in full confidence, he's physically strong, he likes to take people on as well and he makes perfect runs.

"Through the centre of the pitch maybe he's more dangerous.

"I think we had about 30 crosses today and for a while we couldn't win any headers but in the end he got there and he really jumped very high. He's a winner."
