Arsenal were at times very close to our brilliant best against a hard working, determined and in form Burnley side. Despite Arsene Wenger making a whole host of changes to the Gunners starting line up, he was not taking this FA cup fourth round tie lightly and with a bit of luck we would have won it by a big margin.
When Alexis Sanchez joined Arsenal at the beginning of last season he brought his incredible pace, energy and enthusiasm with him, and he practically carried us through the first couple of injury-filled months before reinforcements came off the treatment table.
So the big game against Chelsea approaches, and I think Arsenal have more reason to be confident of a first win over Chelsea for some time, especially now that Arsene Wenger is feeling confident that both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will be on the pitch.
Every Arsenal fan on the planet (I am not sure if there are any in space but them too) will be hoping that our Chilean star striker Alexis Sanchez comes through the next two days of training and proves to Arsene Wenger that there is no risk in starting him at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
While Arsenal fans are expecting Arsene Wenger to have the major double boost of getting our Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez and our German international number 10 Mesut Ozil back from their respective fitness for the Premier League game this weekend against Chelsea, the visitors are likely to be boosted by the return of their Belgium international star Eden Hazard, according to a Sky Sports report.
