14/15: Arsenal 3-0 Stoke City - Alexis Sanchez
Alexis celebrates scoring against Stoke last season

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain spoke to the media after Arsenal's 3-0 victory over Stoke City on Sunday. You can read a full transcript of what he said below:

on Alexis Sanchez…
He’s amazing. He shows it week-in, week-out and I think that’s the most important thing for top players to do. It’s about consistency and it’s not good enough to just be good one week. Everybody wants to see you great every week and I think Alexis has done that all the way through this season. He was brilliant again, scoring two good goals and setting Laurent’s goal up as well. Hopefully it continues for him because he’s having a great season, he’s brimming with confidence and obviously it helps the team as well so it was another great performance from him. There were a lot of good performances out there but obviously with the two goals and the assist, he’s the star of the show.

on the victory…
We knew we had to start well. It was important we got the first goal. We thought that if we could get that, we could push on from there. I thought we did well in the first half. We managed to get a good goal and then I think we managed to see the game out really well, not just the boys up front like Alexis who scored good goals, but the boys at the back like Laurent defended really well for us and gave us the base to move on.

on how much of a boost returning players have given Arsenal…
They’re all players of massive quality. It gives us a lift as players, some extra legs to help us out and they’re quality ones as well. You saw when the likes of Mesut and Theo came on, it gives the whole club a big lift. The fans are happy to see them back, we’re all happy to see them back and I’m sure they’re going to play a massive role in the run in for the rest of the season.
