Wenger talks up Sanchez, Lacazette partnership

Arsene Wenger has hinted that he may play wantaway striker Alexis Sanchez alongside Alexandre Lacazette in the Gunners’ upcoming clash against Liverpool.

Less than a day after stating that he believes the wantaway Sanchez still loves playing for Arsenal, the Frenchman spoke to reporters about how Lacazette is settling in and suggested that the two forwards could well form a formidable partnership.

Sanchez, who has recovered from an abdominal injury and is expected to feature in Wenger’s starting XI traveling to Anfield on Sunday, is likely to depart The Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, but Wenger is hopeful that he could still have a positive influence on the club’s new record signing.

“He is still in an adaptation period to the team and to the league,” Wenger said of the former Olympique Lyonnais hitman. “He is a bit surprised by the intensity of it all in training and in the games. He will get there because he is brave and he is intelligent.

“The intelligence of his runs and the quality of his technique is very good. Overall I don’t worry for him,” the long-serving Gunners boss added.

“Their co-operation looks promising because there is no reason why, the two are good goal scorers, the two are good finishers, the two are good passers, the two have good assists.”
