Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson is chuffed with the work rate of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez after his impressive start to the season.
The Gunners secured a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium to move within four points of leaders Chelsea.
The 26-year-old says the quality of the forward’s work rate has been constantly overlooked despite it being exceptional.
‘It’s a pleasure to play behind a player like that,’ Jenkinson told the Arsenal website.
‘On the ball he’s fantastic and people know what he offers and what he can bring, and just to see his work rate is great.
‘People underestimate how hard he works sometimes because people always look at what he can do with the ball, but his work rate is exceptional. That’s always nice to have in front of you as a full back, to have that protection.’
Arsenal welcome Southampton to the Emirates Stadium in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
Kick-off has been scheduled for 21:45.
