Wenger: Alexis Sanchez gives you that incisive game.

Arsenal boss has once again praised Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez for his sublime performance in their 2-0 FA Cup win over Steve Bruce's Hull City.

The Gunners broke the deadlock in the 20th minute through Per Mertesacker, as the German defender headed home a corner-kick from Alexis Sanchez.

And in the second-half Sanchez helped the north London side score the second goal of the night which was enough for Arsenal to go through to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The goal for the former Barcelona and Udinese forward made it his 16th goal of the season and Wenger had nothing but praise for the 26-year-old.

“He gives you always that incisive game and forces the defenders into mistakes. He looks always dangerous – he is a dream for a manager,” the Arsenal boss said as quoted by The Sport Review.

“I was tempted to rest him today but he always feels ready. He wants always to play. He loves it and that’s what you want from players.

“He played a part in both the goals and he has a good fighting spirit.”
