Aaron Ramsey hails Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez ahead of Anderlecht clash
Aaron Ramsey impressed by Alexis Sánchez's work-rate
Aaron Ramsey has heaped praise on Alexis Sanchez for work-rate the Chile international has shown since his arrival at Arsenal.
The 25-year-old has been one of the Gunners’ standout performers in an otherwise disappointing start to the season for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Sanchez has scored three goals and made two assists in the Premier League, but Ramsey has been particularly impressed by the forward’s defensive work.
“Sanchez is up for the fight as well, he’s not just there when he’s got the ball,” Ramsey told The Mirror.
“Defensively, he wants to work hard for the team and realises that’s important.
“That’s a great quality to have as an attacking player to realise there is work to be done defensively when we haven’t got the ball.”
