Theo Walcott has revealed that Alexis Sanchez has been training as much as possible following his summer switch to Arsenal.

The Chile international scored twice once again as Arsenal ran out 3-0 winners over Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Sanchez has now scored seven goals and made two assists in the Premier League this season following his summer transfer from Barcelona.

And Walcott, who was an 80th-minute substitute on Saturday, has been impressed by the 25-year-old’s work-rate.

“In training he doesn’t even want to do recovery days,” Walcott told talkSPORT. “That’s how much he loves football.

“All the guys have told him he needs to chill out because, at Christmas when all the fixtures come along, it’s going to catch up with you.

“He doesn’t care, he just wants to play and win. He’s a good leader, and something that we haven’t had in the Arsenal team before. He’s a dream to play with.”
