This will be the Chilean’s fifth derby since joining in 2014, but the magnitude of the occasion has not been lost on him.
“It’s going to have everything,” he said. “It’ll be a high-intensity match with plenty of hustle and bustle. I’ve played them a few times now and the first time I didn’t know what to expect. They told me I had to start strong, and I remember I got taken out early on but then told myself that wouldn’t happen again.
“We like to dominate possession and pass the ball around, but we’ll have to be wise to the counter-attack [on Sunday].”
Alexis admits that he is all too aware of the importance of the result, not least to the Arsenal supporters.
“Yes, fans do come up to me and say to win this game, it’s a game that they want to see us win at all costs,” he said. “They’re a massive rival. My team-mates and I will leave everything on the pitch. The Arsenal fans are amazing supporters and that really helps me to perform well and want to give them something to celebrate.”
