They have only played together three times so far, but that is more than enough for Alexis Sanchez to have drawn a positive impression of the “excellent” Alexandre Lacazette.

Our new French forward has scored four times in eight Premier League appearances, and Alexis feels his team-mate has all the attributes to succeed in England.

“When he has a goalscoring chance, he is a good finisher,” the Chile forward told Arsenal Player. “He’s a classic striker.

“He was a successful player in France, and the two of us work well together. He’s an excellent player.

“I believe we have [a good understanding]. We haven’t played that many games together but when we have, I like how he plays.

“He finds space and understands the game well. He is very talented.”

The two stars will most likely make the starting lineup in the clash against Everton on Sunday as the Gunners seek to make amends after their horrendous show at Vicarage Road against Watford last weekend.
