The Gunners are fifth in the Premier League table after surrendering a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
However Sanchez, who moved to Arsenal from Barcelona in a £35 million deal this summer, believes that the Gunners have enough quality to challenge for silverware.
According to AS, he said:
Now that I am here, sometimes I stop to look at my team-mates during the training session and I realise that I am surrounded by a lot of quality stars.
I have been impressed by their attitude and their talent. I love how they create spaces, their individual and collective movements.
I tell you seriously: I like what I see so much that I have repeated myself many times, that if we have the required winning mentality, if we are positive and try to win every single game, I know we can win any competition.

I know that with this team we can win many trophies in the coming years. I am convinced. I hope to win everything here. That’s why I came.
The Gunners have been very mediocre this season and have already been ruled out as title contenders, with leaders Chelsea a massive twelve points ahead. They are struggling to win games that they should easily put away, having drawn five games out of the ten they have played. I feel the major reason behind this is the growing injury list which already includes Serge Gnabry, Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, David Ospina, Mesut Ozil and Mathieu Debuchy.
If a fully fit Arsenal had been playing all along, they would not have struggled as much; that is a fact. Whether or not they can now start challenging more competitively once the squad returns to full fitness is a different matter altogether, but they will certainly have a much better win ratio (I hope).
Some people might argue that the poor form is the result of Wenger’s stubbornness in the transfer market, but let’s get off the manager’s back, start looking at the facts and support the team. I agree that it would have been better if we had signed more players but with the injury record the club has, can we guarantee that Arsenal would have been top if we signed more players? I don’t think so.
