Arsene Wenger on victory over Leicester City and Alexis Sanchez's performance


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised his players after a very convincing win away at Leicester City.

The Gunners were shocked by the hosts' early lead but didn't panic as they first restored parity and then went on to enjoy a comfortable win to take all three points from the King Power Stadium.

"I want us to score goals but I must say Leicester played well and to play a good football game there needs to be two teams," Wenger told reporters.

"They had the stronger start, they pushed us on our back foot from the start when they scored the first goal and I must say I was concerned after that as I thought they were close to scoring a second one and it would have made it difficult.

"We found the resources to equalise and after that our technical quality and the pace of our strikers gave them problems and we managed to make it 2-1 before half-time. In the second half we controlled the game and looked always like we could add another one. "

Chile's Alexis Sanchez scored his first goals of the season and the Frenchman says the 26-year-old is back to his very best.

"He [Alexis Sanchez] is back to his level," Wenger said.

"He won a big competition with Chile - the Copa America. I think as well mentally to adjust to the game on a mental level takes some time. I could see in training a different player in the last week or two and he has shown that today.

"I believe going forward he always looked dangerous."
