It would be just about typical of the seemingly superhuman physical attributes of the Arsenal and Chile international if he was somehow to be fit enough to play some part in the Community Shield contest against Chelsea this weekend, despite the Confederates Cup delaying his summer break and then a bout of sickness meaning he did not get back to north London until this week.
But that seems to be what the striker is hoping to do as he posted some pictures on csocial media of him undertaking extra training in a bid to face Chelsea on Sunday, Metro reports.
It is fairly apparent to all that the 28-year old Gunner was hoping to complete a summer transfer away from north London to a team with Champions League hopes but Arsene Wenger seems to be holding firm and so, Alexis may just have accepted this and his natural commitment and desire has now taken over and will drive him on to give his best for Arsenal, which is all that the boss and the fans can ask.
But even a player as fit and focused as Sanchez cannot be ready to goi in less than a week can he? Could Arsenal fans really see the Chilean in action against Chelsea?
