Reports are out claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident of having the influential duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez available to face Chelsea on Sunday.

Wenger said: “Compared to last week, we have no big problems. The good news is that Ozil certainly will be available and for Sanchez, the next two days will be decisive – but I think he will be available for selection. The signs we’ve had in training this week are very positive.”

While Sanchez is back in contention after missing 10 games, Wenger is still wary about throwing him back in too soon.

“The doubt is about him having been out for a long time, and the risk of a setback,” Wenger said.

“To be clear on all the tests is one thing. To be clear after training is another. But the intensity of a big game you can never replicate in training, but you can make the risk minimal.

“I’m cautious with him because we cannot afford a setback, which would mean a very long period out. We don’t want to take this risk.”
