Having signed from Barcelona this past summer, Sanchez has really hit the ground running at the Emirates. Despite playing a huge number of games however, the Arsenal boss insists that the 26-year-old is showing no signs of fatigue.
“You look at the players who have that confidence and you are torn between when a player is that confident to keep him on playing or give him a rest, but when the players are confident it is important to keep them going, especially when they have that physical potential,” he said.
“Sanchez recovers very quickly and he doesn’t look in our tests to have any fatigue problem.”
You get the impression that Sanchez is the kind of player who needs to be forced to rest, with Wenger allegedly offering him a rest against Hull City on Sunday; which he promptly turned down.
