Alexis Sanchez will decorate his chiseled body with an Arsenal tattoo if the Gunners win the league

Alexis Sanchez is very confident about Arsenal’s Premier League chances with the striker vowing to get a tattoo if Arsenal top the table at the end of the 2015/16 Premier League season. Sanchez also committed his future to Arsenal as he is happy at the North London club.

Speaking to The Mirror,  Sanchez revealed how he would celebrate the Gunners first league title since the Invincibles, saying “It would be a dream. Right now, I don’t know what I would do if we won the league. But maybe a tattoo!”

“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. 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.”

The Chilean also spoke about the fantastic spirit at Arsenal, saying “The unity here between fans, club and players is enormous and the supporters have been fantastic. 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. We suffer the defeats and enjoy the ­victories together. The spirit between the players is sensational and, when we do suffer a blow, we are able to overcome it. That’s very important.”

Given his fantastic spell at Arsenal so far, Sanchez has committed his future to the club, saying “I am very happy at Arsenal and I’m not thinking about leaving.”

Sanchez gives his take on rivals

Ahead of Arsenal’s game against Chelsea at the Emirates tonight, Sanchez is bewildered by the fortunes of their London rivals, saying “I am very surprised by Chelsea’s results this season and by the exit of Mourinho. 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.”

With Sanchez in line for a return from a hamstring injury suffered in November, Arsenal can look forward to the Chilean possibly propelling them to a first Premier League title in a decade.
