According to latest reports, Chilean and Arsenal Forward Alexis Sanchez has gotten a knock and his country will give him until the last minute to determine if he will be fit enough to feature against Uruguay or it will be too much of a health. risk.
Arsenal therefore will have to suffer for it as the Gunners could be lining up without their star forward Alexis Sanchez when they resume their English Premier League title challenge against West Brom in the weekend.
This is too much bad news for Arsenal fans who have had to deal with too many absentees already in the first-team, especially the important ones who have helped the team on to the first position on the league table.
Sanchez has already carried on his good form from last season and has scored 10 goals in 20 appearances for both club and country this season. Although he started the season on a low but he has gotten back his incredible form as all of the 10 goals so far came within a six-match run and included a hat-trick against Leicester in September.
Sanchez had been struggling with the injury since after playing the full 90 minutes of Chile’s 1-1 home draw with Colombia last Thursday even with the knock he had received.
Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli said, “Alexis has a pain in his calf and we will wait for him until the last minute to see if he is ready to play.”
It will be in Arsenal’s best interest if Chile allow the forward rest so he can be in a fine form for Arsenal to help the Gunners in the league.
Meanwhile the trio of Ramsey, Chamberlain and Theo Walcott are in line to make a return to the Arsenal squad this weekend. While the likes of Wilshere, Rosicky and Welbeck are likely to be back in the third week of December.
