Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger Plays Down Alexis Sanchez Injury Fears

It has been reported that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has allayed injury fears over Alexis Sanchez’s strapped ankle.

The Frenchman insists Alexis “looks alright” despite being pictured with an ice pack on his ankle after Arsenal’s 4-1 victory against Galatasaray.

The Chilean forward was hurt in a challenge with midfielder Felipe Melo, who only picked up a booking for his late lunge. But Wenger said that Sanchez should be fine for the game against Chelsea this weekend, while Jack Wilshere is also ready for 90 minutes.

“It could have been a red. I’ll have to see it again,” Wenger said after the game.

“It looked from where I was that it was a red.

“I took Alexis off to be a bit more solid defensively once we were down to 10 men. Unfortunately, in my life I haven’t met many players who are happy to come off.”
