In case you had any doubt, Alexis Sánchez is PSYCHED for this Sunday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, according to ESPN FC.

"It's going to have everything," Alexis said. "It'll be a high-intensity match with plenty of hustle and bustle.

Furthermore, Alexis is thinking of us, the fans, as he heads into the match.

"It's a game that they want to see us win at all costs. They're a massive rival. My teammates and I will leave everything on the pitch,” he said. “When we win, the fans are happy, so we're always trying to give them something to celebrate.”

What a guy. Alexis has been in great form for Arsenal recently, having adapted quite well to the center forward role. With both the Gunners and the Spurs looking like genuine title contenders, this is shaping up to be an epic north London derby.

Alexis also said that he has no friends on the Tottenham squad. And I would like to go on record and say that as a loyal Arsenal news blogger, I too have no friends on the Tottenham squad.
