Alexis is back! by Sam P
Arsenal fans have been given a massive boost with the news that Alexis Sanchez’s recovery is almost complete and he will be back in training on Monday as soon as he gets back from Chile. That means that Arsene Wenger will have six days to assess our superstar ahead of the massive clash against Man City next week.
Arsene Wenger sounded extremely confident when he said: “He is due back Sunday and will train Monday morning at 9.30,”
“How quickly is he back? Let me see on Monday but I think he runs already. I sent him back to Chile and he worked with the national team physio there.
“We will see what kind of state he is in on Monday. I think he will be short for Manchester City certainly but with Alexis you never know.”
I have to disagree! With Alexis you know he will be ready to face Man City on Tuesday! Meanwhile I am expecting Campbell and Walcott to play on the wings alongside Olivier Giroud in tomorrow’s game against Aston Villa. That is not a bad line-up as it is, so if they play well perhaps Wenger could afford to give Sanchez a bit of extra time off next week as well. But knowing Wenger, he will play Alexis as soon as possible.
