This is the good news that Arsenal fans have been waiting for, as we have had to hope that the lengthy injury list at the club did not inflict too much damage on our hopes of Premier League success this season. And with our first FA cup game of the season coming up just days before we travel to Anfield to face Liverpool, the timing of the return of Alexis Sanchez could not have been better.
Metro are reporting that Arsene Wenger has been extra careful with our super striker in order to ensure that the Chilean international is properly and fully fit and is not in danger of suffering a recurrence of the hamstring problem he picked up at the end of November.
But now Alexis is said to be ready for action and so the boss is planning to bring him back to face Sunderland on Saturday. This is great news for Arsenal and Sanchez and it also allows Wenger to hand our magical midfielder Mesut Ozil a well earned break, which the report says he is set to do.
If this report is correct then would you expect Alexis to come in as a direct replacement for the German play maker in the number 10 position?
