Arsenal legend Robert Pires claims ‘everything is the same’ at the north London club despite the departure of key player Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger let go of Sanchez in exchange for Manchester United’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January, but he also signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund.

And despite the loss of the Chile international – who scored 80 goals for the club – Pires remains adamant the Gunners are not worse of because of his exit.
