Alexis Sanchez injury boost caps great Arsenal night

Even though the Arsenal and Chile international forward was nowhere near the Karaiskakis Stadium, I reckon that Alexis Sanchez would have been keeping a close eye on what his Arsenal team mates were up to and I bet that no one was more pleased that him at the performance and the 3-0 result that puts our name into the draw for the knockout phase of the Champions League.

And it might be sooner than you think when we get to see Alexis back on the pitch for the Gunners. Before the kick off they were talking about Arsenal on BT sport and one of the presenters let us know that they had been given a positive injury update on the Chilean, saying that he could be back in action withing two weeks.

If this proves to be the case then Arsene Wenger could have his star striker back in time for the big Premier League clash with Man City on the 21st. Maybe this good news was part of the reason for Arsenal pulling off such a great game in Greece.

Although the team has so far managed to get by without Alexis, how much better will we feel when he is back and making Premier League defenders’ lives a misery again?

  1. I must say giroud put in an awesome shift in athens with a hattrick, putting us through to the round of 16! This was indeed a man of the match performance from him, well done! Coyg!

  2. Great news for sure, but I think the greatest thing to take away from this game is that we no don’t need to rush Alexis back, as Campbell has been playing excellent in the meantime.

    Great day to a be Gooner!

  3. That moment when alexis hears bout the scoreLine in greece…….. Throws away his crutches and starts Jumping and running!

    MiracLe + a dose of Epinephrine

  4. we were outplayed the opening 20 min, especially Bellerin who struggled. Wenger switched Walcott and Campbell and that little tweak changed the outcome of the match.

    Campbell is gaining confidence, matter of time before he is scoring goals for us. I hope he carry that form in the premier league

  5. Campbell had a great game and he is growing in confidence! I pray he remains consistant and just keep going from strength to strength! Coyg!

  6. What a match performance yesterday………truely unbelievable…….. everyone deserves a pat on their back……and if we Alexis back for the city game then it will be a big boost for us…..fingers crossed.

  7. Excellent (Mr Burns rubbing his hands together)

    We need Alexis for the final push

    Until then I hope Campbell keeps up the good work
    Also hope Oxlade improves

    Great night

  8. Sanchez will be buzzing with that result and I bet he cant wait to get back into the team and add more to our game!!!

  9. and Campbell he is coming good like I predict…that why I did not want him to go…He is starting to show real class and trickery…What a performance from him second MOTM for me….hopefully he can show more consistency and add more to his game

  10. They made me proud last night. OX and Gibbs need to improve their games. I like the fact that Gibbs is being used as a winger.
