Pablo Zabaleta warns Man City over new Arsenal signing
Pablo Zabaleta warns Manchester City that they are in for a "tough afternoon" against Alexis Sánchez at Arsenal
Pablo Zabaleta has warned Manchester City that they are in for a “tough afternoon” when they take on Alexis Sánchez and Arsenal on Saturday.
The Chile international is expected to start the crunch Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium following his £35m move to north London from Barcelona this summer.
You know you are in for a tough afternoon when you face him
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.”
