Is this latest Alexis news good or bad for Arsenal fans?

Alexis Just Arsenal News As you can all see from the picture, the latest news from South America is that Alexis Sanchez is back in training, despite his hamstring injury.

For some reason he has a bandage over the injured area, but how that be of any help for an internal injury I am failing to grasp, unless it is a reminder for him to take it easy.

So from this we would have to guess that the Chilean manager is hoping that Alexis can run this off and still play tomorrow in the Crucial World Cup Qualifier against Uruguay. This could be thought of as good news for Arsenal fans, as perhaps the injury really is very minor and won’t affect his playing, although I doubt very much that Arsene Wenger will be thinking like that!

Le Prof will be thinking that this is very bad news. I am absolutely certain that if he was back at Arsenal, Wenger would have immediately whisked him into the treatment room for intensive tests and ordered to have complete rest until he was certain that there was no danger of a relapse before he puts him back in training, never mind into a game.

We all know what happened last season when he was played with a minor hamstring injury. He missed nearly two months of games for Arsenal. And even then he didn’t return to his best for another month after that.

So, what do you think? Is it good or bad news?

    It could be worse
    It could be a lot worse
    I am just happy to see him moving around in training

    Alexis is a trooper. One of our hardest working players
    He even trains on vacation
    Hopefully, his work on his physical fitness and mental toughness will keep him playing throughout the season
    But he needs to change his mentality a little bit and not be so willing to risk injury
    If he is told to rest, he should rest

    Love MY Alexis

      Bad news for United!

    I said it before, and I’ll say it again – Alexis himself has to learn how to say “No” sometimes. Pride and everything else aside, Arsenal are paying his wages, not Chile. And I’m not saying it just because I want to see him play ManU this coming weekend. If we can avoid a long term injury with him, I’d sit him in both games.

  3. Kostafi says:

    It’s bad news either way. If he isn’t seriously injured, then he is definitely in the red zone and will end up injured sooner rather than later unless he learns to take a break when needed. I understand all players want to be at the world cup (which has no Europa League) and with Chile in 5th, I’m sure Alexis wants to do his best for his country. However an injured Alexis can’t help either Chile or Arsenal.

    Perhaps more worrying is the reported stalemate in contract negotiations? Unlike Bellerin who reportedly took 4 days to agree and sign a double your money deal or Ozil who reportedly just bought a £10m London pad. Come Alexis, put Arsenal first!

    PPS Arsenal going an extra step and selling the League Cup game tickets for £20,£10,£5 like the last round so turn up at the Emirates come Nov 30

    Its a mixed feeling if you asked me:
    1. Its a good and exciting news that his injury is not serious, so we can soon welcome him back to business. But

    2. He will definitely play for chile which can trigger the othe part of the story.

    Hope he will be alright anyway.

    Right or wrong, Alexis puts his country ahead of his club.
