Arsenal handed HUGE Alexis injury boost for EPL opener v Liverpool

Arsenal fans will have to wait and see whether or not the Gunners that went the furthest at the Euro 2016 tournament will be match fit and ready to play for Arsenal in the opening game of the Premier League season at home to Liverpool, especially Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud who went all the way to the final.

Aaron Ramsey suggested that he might be a little short of full fitness after coming back for pre-season training on August 1st and if that is true of the Welshman it will probably be true for Mesut Ozil and the two Frenchman as well. There is some good news for Arsenal fans ahead of that crucial first game though, because the Evening Standard has reported a very positive update from our Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez.

alexis ankle
The striker was a big concern for us just over a week a go after posting a horrible picture of the badly bruised and heavily swollen ankle he picked up in the Copa America final. As you can see from the new picture, however, there is already great progress and with a month still to ge before the EPL campaign kicks off it looks like Alexis is one star that is going to be ready for action.

  1. Yes!

    I never panicked about the swollen ankle as I was so sure he will definately be fine before the season starts, he wouldn’t also wanna miss the opening game, I trust him on that…..

    However, am little concerned about Giroud and Kos in particular because they are now so disappointed after failing to lift the Euros,I hope they shake it off before the season starts so it won’t affect their performances..

  2. Can someone please give us a rumor even if we are sure it wont happen. We need to feel that something is happening. Where did Leo go????? Tell him we need him at this trying moment. Wenger better do something because next season might have lots of negative vibe.
    Wishing Sanchez a quick recovery.

      Wenger says “No”

      1. Wenger thought ” if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is too good to be true “

  3. Another transfer window with bugger all happening. I am worried, very worried. We still need better strikers.

  4. No need to worry if he buys some players. As for players being fit for the start of the season they should be just fine. Don’t need to play them in pre games just let them rest. But we need players in and Rambo should be fit because he missed lots of the season as to jack. A S won’t miss tbe Liverpool game if he has a chance but my worries are no players in. CBs needed DM needed 2 strikers end of and why not a winger just go and spend some money. Or is he doing this coz it’s his last year and the new manager will have money to spend? We hope

    1. It is the top four business model, it is OK if three teams beat us. The method is
      1. make a good signing early in the transfer window
      2. Drop hints about other players coming in
      3. Make an offer for a player we need but ensure it fails
      4. Let the media rumour mill do its job and do not deny any rumours so arsenal are linked to many stellar players.
      5. Buy players for the future, this promotes long term fan support/interest with little expenditure and may yield a future profit.
      6. Get the season ticket money into the coffers
      7. Buy last minute bargain basement players if they become available and are suitable.
      8. Closely monitor other teams and ensure that arsenal are likely to be beaten by a maximum of three teams. Take further action in terms of transfers if top four place looks under threat.

      Cynical I know but I believe that kroenke is only interested in the value of his shares and not winning things.
