PHOTOS: Sanchez girlfriend spotted at Emirates as Arsenal fans welcome the Chilean with a huge roar

Alexis Sanchez’s girlfriend Laia Grassi was spotted in the crowd as Arsenal beat Benfica by 5-1 in their pre season preparations for the 2014-15 season in the Emirates Cup.

Grassi posted a picture on Instagram tagging, “with the team.”.

Sanchez made his Gunners debut playing 45 minutes of the 5-1 as young striker Yaya Sanogo thumped in four goals in what was an easy win for Arsene Wenger’s side.

As Sanchez graced his place coming off the bench, the Emirates faithful almost lifted the lid off to welcome their new acquistion. The fans welcome Sanchez onto the pitch with a giant roar.

The Emirates faithful welcomed the former Barcelona winger with a thunderous applause but failed to impress as manager Arsene Wenger said, “He is not fit yet but he showed with his runs he can be very dangerous. He will play for 45 minutes tomorrow.” 

The 25 year old is expected to thump in goals for the London club helping to take the pressure off Olivier Giroud up front. The Chilean scored 19 goals and grabbed 10 assists in 34 appearances for the Catalan outfit last season before a stunning display at the World Cup.
