Despite the concerns over the fitness of the heavily worked forward Alexis Sanchez, not many Arsenal fans or football observers really expected Arsene Wenger to leave his star man out of the Arsenal starting line up for the away game at Norwich City today and so it is no surprise to see the Chilean´s name on Wenger’s team sheet.
Norwich must be dreading a backlash from the Gunners after our bad luck at the Hawthorns, and having lost 5 of their last six games they must now be getting worried about their chances of surviving in the Premier League after this campaign.
Many Arsenal fans were very underwhelmed when Joel Campbell got a run in the First XI as the right-winger due to simultaneous injuries to Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but for today’s game at Norwich both of those will be back in the Arsenal squad so Arsene Wenger now has to decide on which of the three will start the match at Carrow Road.
We have all seen how Alexis Sanchez can look totally knackered at the end of a game, and then three days later yet again run around like he has had a month’s rest in the Caribean, and it has not escaped Arsene Wenger’s attention either. “When he does something he does it 100 per cent,” Le Prof said.
When one door close another one opens so they say and the lengthy Arsenal injury list that Arsene Wenger has to come with at the minute means that the door to the first team could be opened to a few of the young Gunners at the club for the game away to West Brom this weekend.
