Arsenal have been plagued by injury problems a lot more than our Premier League rivals in recent years and there is a strong argument that our bad luck on this front has cost the Gunners at least one title win, so we are always concerned about one or more of our stars picking up a knock, especially when they head off on international duty.
There are still a few games of Euro 2016 to go and with four Arsenal players still involved there could still be a major blow around the corner but so far it has gone well for Arsenal, even though there are reports that Olivier Giroud has a small knee problem that might keep him out of tomorrow’s semi-final between France and Germany.
The biggest concern of the summer so far was the swollen ankle of Alexis Sanchez that the Chile international suffered in the Copa America final after a terrible tackle by the Argentine defender Gabriel Mercado. He posted some horrible pictures of the bruised and swollen joint but it seems to have looked a lot worse than it actually was.
Sanchez has already revealed that his ankle is much better and his latest social media post shows him relaxing and enjoying a well earned rest in Florida with a series of pictures reported by the Daily Mail that should have Arsenal fans and his manager Arsene Wenger feeling very confident in having an in form Alexis ready to rock at the start of the new Premier League season which is just over a month away.
So will our Chilean star be the main man again next season and help the Gunners get our latest title challenge off to a flying start?
