Alexis Sanchez has shown that he likes Arsenal’s new home kit, with the former Gunners forward responding to Granit Xhaka’s post on Instagram with a wordless reaction on Thursday following its unveiling.

The Gunners have confirmed their new home kit ahead of next season. Mikel Arteta’s men will debut the strip on the final day of this Premier League campaign, with Everton set to visit the Emirates on Sunday afternoon. Of course, Arsenal still have an outside chance of ending the year inside the top-four and booking their spot in the Champions League.

One person who appears to be a fan of the new kit is Sanchez. The Chilean enjoyed the most prolific spell of his career while in North London.

In three and a half seasons with the Gunners, Sanchez scored 80 goals in 166 appearances in all competitions.

And amongst those to reply to Xhaka was Sanchez, with the 33-year-old showing his support for the new kit…
