Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has praised his Arsenal team-mate Alexis Sanchez, comparing him to Luis Suarez.

Sanchez scored twice for Arsenal in their 2-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday.

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

"Sanchez is 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."
