Wenger backs Sanchez to win over Arsenal boo-boys after jeers on home return
Sanchez was named on the bench against Bournemouth as Danny Welbeck hit a brace and Alexandre Lacazette also netted to get Arsenal's season back on track after successive defeats before the global break. "And on the football front you see he is a great player".
Kolasinac was voted Arsenal.com's Player of the Month this week in recognition of his fine start in England, so hopefully today's display will serve as another reminder to Wenger that he really should be starting him as often as possible, especially in the big games.
Wenger insisted he plans to field a strong team against their German opposition despite the prospect of a trip to Chelsea on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
The long-serving Bournemouth boss said: "You can get bad results in the Premier League, but when you don't have performances, that's where concerns creep in".
Danny Welbeck is relishing the competition for places at Arsenal, with Alexandre Lacazette on board and Alexis Sanchez still at the club. Asmir Begovic did well to parry the ball out for an Arsenal corner.
The same applies to Wenger and the majority of Sanchez's teammates, who played in a largely muted atmosphere that livened up a little as Arsenal pulled clear.
Xhaka then failed to keep his 20-yard effort down after Lacazette's fine hold-up play as Arsenal continued to pile the pressure on the floundering visitors. "He will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly".
Bournemouth sit 19th after they were utterly outclassed by a rampant Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
While Arsenal recovered from losses to Stoke and Liverpool, the hosts were rarely troubled by an ineffective Bournemouth side that has opened the season with four successive losses.
Meanwhile, what if Alexandre Lacazette, such a marvellous finisher and completely unerring when Welbeck's good work gave him the chance to double Arsenal's lead from 18 yards, had been trusted to do exactly the same in a match of higher stakes?
"It was very, very disappointing from our perspective, a poor performance from start to finish", he said. "On the ball we were negative, wasteful and slow and that is not like us".
Manager Eddie Howe was unhappy with the display and, with Bournemouth still without a point so far this season, midfielder Dan Gosling wants a reaction against Brighton on Friday night.
Wenger, however, provided better news regarding Jack Wilshere after revealing that the England global is closing in on a return to action. Two new signings mystifyingly omitted on Merseyside, Lacazette and Kolasinac, were recalled along with Shkodran Mustafi, the latter having seemed surplus to requirements before the transfer window closed.

Stephen King's 'It' Gets a New 8-bit Game
Unlike the 1990 version, this movie does not delve into the characters when they grow up and have to battle Pennywise again. However, the makeup and the slight rasp he adds to his voice makes it much more menacing and evil than your average clown.
