Christmas has come early for Arsenal, and not in terms of results on the field.
The celebrations have started in earnest in the household of Alexis Sanchez, whose dogs are readying themselves for those cold winter nights with matching festive jumpers.
The Chilean’s pets, Atom and Humber, have almost become part of the team at the Emirates Stadium and the Gunners thought to reward the lovable pooches for keeping their star playmaker happy away from the pitch.
The dogs’ red outfits have ‘Gunners’ emblazoned across the back above a picture of Father Christmas himself.
Sanchez beamed as he unwrapped the present from Arsenal, knowing his dogs would be thrilled with their matching outfits this festive season.
The gifts are part of an initiative by the north London club to donate money to the Save the Children charity.
Twenty per cent of the proceeds from each jumper, which retails at £15, will be given to the charity — which endeavours to help children all around the world.
