Alexis Sanchez sets Arsenal targets for the season

Alexis Sanchez is confident that Arsenal can challenge for trophies on all fronts this season

Alexis Sanchez has backed Arsenal to challenge for trophies in the second half of the season.

The north London side are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table and have some work to do to claw themselves back into the race for the title.

Arsenal also face the daunting prospect of a Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich next month as they look to progress to the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph back in the 2003-04 season and must claw back an eight-point deficit to leaders Chelsea if they want to win the trophy this season.

However, Sanchez is backing Arsenal to be one of the main contenders for top honours this season.

Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Player in the video above, Sanchez said: “I believe we have the players and the quality to win many things.

“I feel really happy and comfortable at the club. I want to give the fans a new title.

“We always get our fans’ support in the thick and thin, which is great. We must win the Premier League or Champions League for them.”
