Arsene Wenger has come out and said that there is a slight chance that Alexis Sanchez will be fit to face Man City on Monday, but we all know about the Chilean’s power of recovery and the fact that Wenger will definitely play him even if he is only 70% fit!
Man City have said the same thing about Sergio Aguero returning, but again, the importance of this game is not lost on both managers and they will be taking risks if it will give them the edge in this closely matched encounter, where just one moment of brilliance from either South American may seal the points.
Both players still have another three days to improve their fitness and I am certain that we will see them on the pitch at sometime on Monday evening. But as Arsenal fans are much more interested in Alexis Sanchez I will give you a recording of Wenger’s exact words when he was discussing Alexis this afternoon.
