Arteta on Alexis Sanchez
“[Alexis] looks very good. He’s got pace, he’s got that special technique, his feet are so, so quick.
“He’s a bit cheeky on the pitch, he’s got those runs, that movement, he’s always on the shoulder of a defender and he wants to score goals.
“He has the right attitude here – very humble. He’s going to do well – I think the fans are very excited and I think they are right because we’ve signed some player here.”
