Sanchez: I’m still learning

SANCHEZ-CELEBLONDON, November 13- Alexis Sanchez admits he initially struggled to find his feet at Arsenal, but feels he is becoming more and more in tune with his team-mates as the season goes on.

The Chile international joined the Gunners from Barcelona at the beginning of the campaign for £35m, and scored his 12th goal for his new club last weekend in the 2-1 loss to Swansea City.

And, while that result left Arsene Wenger’s men already 12 points off the pace in the Premier League, Sanchez is confident of enjoying much success with the north London giants.

“Little by little I am gaining confidence in my team-mates and am gradually learning more,” he told AS Chile.

“At first I had trouble understanding them, knowing where they ran, their movements, what gestures meant what, but every time I feel more confident.

“I am starting to memorise the moves of my team-mates and I learn to help them – clearly I need to improve and that is what I say in the dressing room, that I could stay a little less with the ball, play one touch play more often to facilitate counter-attacks, that is vital.

“I must learn that because the rapid transitions are key in this league and with this team.”
