Alexis Sanchez gets started on Twitter - Which 8 Arsenal players does he follow?

Alexis Sanchez Chile

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez gets started on Twitter.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez has finally begun being active on Twitter, posting his first tweet this week.

The in-form Chilean already has 400,000 plus followers, and indicated he was going to start communicating with his fans via the social network.


He also began a flurry of activity following his Arsenal teammates, but not quite all of them just yet.

Sanchez follows eight Gunners, including Mesut Ozil, which helps scotch erroneous reports suggesting the two had fallen out.

The £30 million striker follows Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Lukas Podolski, Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla.

So who does he need to add to lift his Twitter game to become as prolific as his goalscoring, before he begins posting message regularly?

Sanchez is missing Wojciech Szczesny, Calum Chambers, Olivier Giroud, Hector Bellerin, Mathieu Debuchy, Emiliano Martinez, Per Mertesacker and Kieran Gibbs.

Mikel Arteta commented earlier this week that the attacker is still struggling with learning the English language and adapting off the field, well what better way than to read and pick up everything his teammates are saying, irrelevant or important.
