Alexis Sanchez: Might get tattoo if Arsenal win Premier League

Alexis Sanchez is not thinking about leaving Arsenal and may even get a tattoo if they win the Premier League title this season.

Sanchez is expected to return from injury against Chelsea on Sunday as the Gunners go in search of the win which would move them back to the top of the table after Leicester City once again took over at the summit with a 3-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

Sanchez is loving life at Emirates Stadium and has set his sights on a memorable treble this season, though he admits simply winning the league would represent a “dream”.

“I am very happy at Arsenal and I’m not thinking about leaving,” said Sanchez in the Sunday Mirror.

“The unity here between fans, club and players is enormous and the supporters have been fantastic. We suffer the defeats and enjoy the ­victories together.

“This campaign we are ­demonstrating that we are serious candidates for the Premier League title. I think there can be no doubt about our credentials to be ­champions this time.

“It’s true that we have lost important points that could have given us a bigger advantage in the table, but, overall, we are having a very good season.

“The spirit between the players is sensational and, when we do suffer a blow, we are able to overcome it. That’s very important.

“I am always ambitious in football and I still want to win three titles this season – the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League. It will not be easy, but we can do it.”

On the possibility of winning the Premier League, Sanchez added: “It would be a dream.

“Right now, I don’t know what I would do if we won the league. But maybe a tattoo!”

Sanchez surprised by Chelsea struggles

Ahead of Sunday’s game, Sanchez also gave his verdict on Chelsea, who are struggling down in 14th and sacked Jose Mourinho in December amid a disastrous title defence.

“I am very surprised by Chelsea’s results this season and by the exit of Mourinho,” added Sanchez. “They are one of the biggest clubs in the league, but this year aren’t in the race for the title. But I’m sure they will beat some big teams because their pride is enormous.

“Every game is difficult and the title race is close. Leicester have been a surprise and we know about Manchester City. But Manchester United also have a great team and are always candidates for the title too.

“They have changed their coach this season and it takes players time to get used to a new system, but I’m sure they will be tough opponents in the title race. So, it’s important we keep going.”
