Arsene Wenger praised the ever-alive Alexis Sanchez after the Arsenal forward struck a brace in Sunday's Premier League win at home to Bournemouth.

With the Gunners enduring another difficult November having gone into this clash winless in all competitions, Sanchez struck in both halves to seal a 3-1 victory which takes Wenger's side to within three points of leaders Chelsea.

Speaking about Sanchez after the game, Wenger said:

Even when he looks dead, he's still alive and always finds the resources to do something special.

He has that conditioning which allows him to always find an extra gear to be dangerous. Bournemouth are a tricky side who can keep the ball and, if you're not well organised, you can be in trouble.

On top of that, I felt we started well but when they equalised we were nervous and that's where having three consecutive draws played a little bit on our minds.
