Arsenal Hitman Uncertain For Man Utd Game, Wenger Reveals

According to Arsene Wenger, Alexis Sanchez is likely to miss out of the game against Manchester United this Saturday.

The Chilean international sustained a hamstring injury and was expected to miss both World Cup qualifier matches with Colombia and Uruguay but he eventually featured in the second where he scored a brace.

The circumstances surrounding his involvement in that game looked fishy as Chile were just too desperate to play him. He was passed fit by the physios but no one knew if it was all in a bid to see him play.

Now that Arsenal are set to take on Manchester United this weekend, the boss still has doubts over his fitness. He stated that he Sanchez will be assessed on Friday to see if he is really okay or not.

"I haven’t heard a lot [about his fitness] because we were in doubt 24 hours before the game against Uruguay," said Wenger.

"We didn’t know if he’d play or not. In the end they decided to play him. He texted us to tell us he’s in good shape after the game. He came off after 84 minutes and now we have to wait. I see him tomorrow [Friday] morning and then I will see if he can be involved in the squad or not.

"What I will consider is the risk of injury because he played while recovering from a hamstring injury. I’ll consider the way he feels as well. On that front you depend on the honesty of the player, how they feel and how they recover."

It would be an added advantage for Arsenal if he is passed fit to play but should it be the contrary, then it will be a big blow for them.

We just hope Sanchez makes it for that game for his absence may mean doom for the team by lunchtime on Saturday.
