Wenger admits he is happy to have £35 million man as top dog at Arsenal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is happy playing Alexis Sanchez centrally.

The Chilean struck twice in victory over Burnley on Saturday, and hnow has seven goals in nine Premier League games.

And Wenger is happy to keep playing him down the middle.

As quoted on the Arsenal site, he said: “I was ready to give him time if he needed it, but he has settled in much quicker than expected,” the Arsenal boss said.

“Now I play him through the middle and he has shown he can find the ball, he can dribble and he can go at you.

“There are similarities with (Luis) Suarez a little bit by going at you, by being where you do not expect him to be in the box, and by having that huge desire to be at the end of things.”
