Arsenal sensation Alexis Sanchez is enjoying his start to life at the club, in particular his partnership with a fellow new addition.

He has forged an impressive partnership with former Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck, who signed on deadline day after an injury to Olivier Giroud.

Currently on international duty with Chile, Sanchez has been speaking to newspaper AS, and has spoken of his delight at playing alongside the England international.

He said: "I love playing with him. He has a very nice touch and scorer. He has been a great signing.

"Sometimes I stop to look my teammates in practice and I realise that I'm surrounded by a lot of quality. I have been impressed by the attitude and talent.

"I know that with this group we can win many titles in the coming years. I'm convinced."

Sanchez's attitude is fantastic, and it's fair to say he shares a lot more optimism than many Arsenal fans do at present, after an inconsistent start to the season.

His praise of Welbeck is credit to the England star, who was deemed surplus to requirements at United.

The pair are playing well alongside each other, with Sanchez scoring 8 in his last 10 games. The big question comes in the future weeks, with the return of Olivier Giroud.

You get the feeling though, that Sanchez would be quite happy if Welbeck were to retain his place.
