Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 'Alexis Sanchez is our Luis Suarez'

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain likens Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez to Luis Suarez following his brace in Saturday's 2-0 Premier League win at Sunderland.

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has hailed the "unbeliveable" Alexis Sanchez after his teammate starred in Saturday's 2-0 win away to Sunderland.

Sanchez scored twice after capitalising on errors from Wes Brown and Vito Mannone to take his total for the season to eight following a £35m move from Barcelona.

Luis Suarez replaced the Chilean at Camp Nou during the summer, and Oxlade-Chamberlain feels that the Gunners now have their own equivalent to the dogged Uruguayan.

"He's a world-class player - everyone saw that at the World Cup," he told the club's official site. "He's proved that and he's played for Barcelona where we've all seen what he's done.

"He's an unbelievable player and part of his game is his character and his hard work - that's where he's got both his goals from today.

"He reminds me of Luis Suarez when he chases everything down and he makes nothing into something. He's done that for us twice today and he's scored goals at important times for us."

Arsenal sit fifth in the Premier League table, eight points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
