Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has revealed where he feels most comfortable in attack; on the left hand side.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper AS, the Chilean explained why he feels most comfortable off of the left hand side, where Arsene Wenger has started him on just three occasions so far this season.
“I love playing in any of the three attacking positions but I feel a little more comfortable out on the left because it allows me to take on the opposing full-back and cut inside and shoot with my right foot,” he told AS.
“It's easier for me to shoot that way but to be honest, I'm just happy to be playing wherever I am fielded by the boss.”
Sanchez played predominantly down the left hand side for old club Barcelona which explains why he’s grown used to that position.
However, Arsene Wenger has presented him with the opportunity to be more than a left sided winger at the Gunners.
The fact he’s been so productive already this season, ten goals and three assists in the Premier League and Champions League, is a tribute to his professionalism because he’s done it predominantly away from where he wants to play in the Arsenal attack.
While he’s so productive, Wenger won’t have a problem using him in different roles and positions but for Arsenal to get the best out of him long term, they’ll have to let him settle eventually.
