And Argentina international Zabaleta is fully aware of the threat posed by the 25-year-old forward.

“Sanchez is a very quick, sharp player who can play wide or as a striker, but I feel he is most dangerous when he is on the flanks,” said Zabaleta.

“He did very well at Barcelona and he is a difficult player to face because you know you are in for a tough afternoon when you face him.

“He is also works very hard for the team, especially when they don’t have the ball and he has become a very important player for Chile so he is a great signing for Arsenal.”
