Oxlade-Chamberlain likens Alexis Sánchez to Luis Suárez | inside World Soccer

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reckons Arsenal teammate Alexis Sánchez is just like Luis Suárez when it comes to "create something from nothing".


Sánchez scored either side of half-time at the Stadium of Light to help the Gunners secure a 2-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday.

The Chile international has scored eight times already this season since his £30 million move from Barcelona, and Oxlade-Chamberlain believes Sánchez reminds him of another South American striker.

He told the club's official website: "Sánchez is a world-class player - everyone saw that at the World Cup. 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 Suárez 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."

Suárez moved to Barcelona from Liverpool for £75m in the summer, following a season in which he scored 31 Premier League goals.
