Wenger backs Sanchez

Arsene Wenger has backed Alexis Sanchez to win back Arsenal's fans after he was booed by some at the Emirates on Saturday.

Sanchez was heavily linked with a move away from the club during the summer window, although a transfer to Premier League rivals Manchester City failed to materialize on deadline day. The Chile international was booed by some fans after being brought on as a late substitute during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

-Alexis Sanchez will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly. We have to accept those responses from people. I don't know why [there were jeers]. The best way to get people on your side is to perform. I had a chat with him after the game and he didn't look unhappy. Maybe it's because he wanted to score. The interpretation of the attitudes is always very dangerous, Wenger said.

Wenger believes it won't be long before Sanchez silences his critics at the Emirates.
