It appears that Alexis Sanchez is pretty much doing whatever the hell he likes at the moment, as after he insisted on coming out for Arsenal in the second half at West Brom against the wishes od Arsene Wenger and the advice of the Arsenal medical team, he has now taken his injured ankle off around the world to play for Chile in what will be a fiercely contested World Cup qualifier against Argentina.
Going by Arsenal’s luck and our injury record that will lead to a breakdown which will keep our star striker out of the next Premier League game at least. It is a massive one for the Gunners as well, at home to top four rivals Man City, and it looks like Alexis may not be the only Arsenal star missing out after this international break, because the Germany national team manager has delivered the bad news that Mesut Ozil has a hamstring problem, reports the Evening Standard.
As the German play maker has not featured for us since the defeat away to Bayern Munich over a month ago and will not be training now so will certainly not be fit to face Man City. We have also lost Lucas Perez and Petr Cech so any chances of Arsenal bouncing back and getting back into the top four look slimmer than ever and we still have to hope that our other internationals come back in one piece.
How could this season get any worse?
