He may have been the best performer in Arsene Wenger’s injury stricken side this season with 12 goals since joining Arsenal from Barcelona for £32million in the summer, but Alexis Sanchez feels he still needs to “improve” some aspects of his game.
The 25-year-old Chile forward reveals he is becoming accustomed to the tenacity and energy sapping aura of the Barclays Premier League, as well as “movements” of his team-mates in games.
Sanchez added he is now full of “confidence”, fired up and ready to help Arsenal achieve success this season.
“Little by little I am gaining confidence in my team-mates and am gradually learning more,” Sanchez told AS Chile.
“At first I had trouble understanding them, knowing where they ran, their movements, what gestures meant what, but every time I feel more confident.
“I am starting to memorise the moves of my team-mates and I learn to help them clearly I need to improve and that is what I say in the dressing room, that I could stay a little less with the ball, play one touch play more often to facilitate counter-attacks, that is vital.
“I must learn that because the rapid transitions are key in this league and with this team.”
