Alexis Sanchez will "win the fans back quickly" after playing for Arsenal for the first time since nearly joining Manchester City on transfer deadline day, says boss Arsene Wenger.

He received a few jeers as he came on at the Emirates on Saturday.

"I don't know why [he was booed]", Wenger said.

"He is disciplined, serious and committed", Wenger told Arsenal's official website. He is focused, he told us he is focused on the Premier League and Europa League. "On top of that Chile had a bad experience [in the global break], but he came back full of desire and was ready to play".

Arsenal had accepted a bid by the Citizens on August 31, only for to fail to persuade Thomas Lemar to join in Sanchez's place, and then refused to allow the forward to leave the club. "Some people say, 'He does this, he does that, ' but I think he's a guy who plays with all of his passion and all of his heart".

Scott Froemming, CEO, said the cooperative is working with the Minnesota Rural Electric Association on providing assistance. A total of 200 men are on their way to help the more than 75 percent of Floridians without power, officials say.

Mesut Ozil spent the global break bickering with former-Arsenal-players-turned-pundits, calling them out for their criticism of the North Londoners and demanding they get behind Wenger's side.

"It's always a test when you had such a negative experience as we had, for the mental health of the team, to see how we respond".

With that in mind Wenger had plenty of big calls to make for what Mesut Ozil described as a "must-win" game.

His displays also brought the suggestion from his former youth coach Jose Sulantay that Sanchez looked "fatter" than usual. His fat percentage is under 10. With some of the games we've played at the start of the season it's not gone too well, but I'm pleased to be on the scoresheet and long may it continue.
