Alexis Sanchez has admitted that he has been impressed by Alexandre Lacazette’s strong start to life as an Arsenal player.

The 26-year-old striker has been getting to grips with life at The Emirates after signing for the north London side from French club Lyon back in July.

Lacazette has scored four goals in his first eight Premier League appearances for Arsenal and looks as though he is adapting well to life in the English top flight.

Arsenal fans will be hoping to see Sanchez and Lacazette strike up a strong partnership at The Emirates for the remainder of this season.

And Sanchez has admitted that he has been impressed by what he has seen from the France international in an Arsenal shirt so far since having started working with him a few months ago.

Sanchez is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “When he has a goal-scoring chance, he is a good finisher. He’s a classic striker.

“He was a successful player in France, and the two of us work well together. He’s an excellent player.

“I believe we have [a good understanding]. We haven’t played that many games together but when we have, I like how he plays.

“He finds space and understands the game well. He is very talented.”

Both Sanchez and Lacazette will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a trip to Everton.

Arsenal are aiming to get back to winning ways in the top flight after the disappointment of their defeat by Watford last weekend.

The Gunners are currently nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the table.
