Arsene Wenger was left praising Alexis Sanchez once again after the Chilean fired Arsenal to a 3-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, Sanchez headed in brilliantly before fellow summer signing Calum Chambers turned home shortly after with his first goal for Arsenal.

Sanchez then made it 3-0 late on in north London when he fired in his second from Kieran Gibbs’ cross, taking his Premier League tally for the season to seven goals.

“It was a top performance from Alexis Sanchez,” said Wenger.

“His quality is exceptional, he takes responsibility and goes at people. He fights, he can score, that is what you want from great players.”

The win marked the first time that Wenger’s men had recorded back-to-back victories in the league this season and hoisted them up to fourth place.

“It was a question of patience and quality and I think we did all of that,” the Gunners boss continued.

“It was important not to concede a goal and in the end it was a comfortable win but everyone works hard in the Premier League.”
