Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he feels completely at home with Arsenal in the Premier League.

The Chile international has been one of the top-flight’s standout performers this season since his £35m transfer to Emirates Stadium from Barcelona last summer.

The 26-year-old attacker has scored 13 goals and made seven assists for his team-mates in 25 Premier League games for Arsene Wenger’s men to help them continue their push for Champions League qualification.

I hope to keep on learning from my team-mates and keep on improving day after day

And Sanchez, who has also netted three times in the Champions League this term, says he feel that he has adapted to life at the north London club with ease.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard, Sanchez said: “I am well adapted to the country and the league.

“I must keep on learning, though. I want to expand my knowledge of English football in general and Arsenal and my team-mates in particular, but overall I love this league.

“At the end of the day, football was invented in this country, right? I live where football was invented. That makes me really happy.

“Ever since I started watching Premier League I found English football very appealing. I hope to keep on learning from my team-mates and keep on improving day after day. That’s what I am here for.

“Here in the Premier League you can get beaten 3-0 by a team laying at the bottom of the table. It is not an unusual thing in English football. That is why any prediction ahead of the game may be very deceptive.

Former Udinese man Sanchez will be expecting to feature when Arsenal host West Ham United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners are currently in third place in the Premier League table heading into the final 10 games of the season.
