Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he understands Chile's decision to play Alexis Sanchez against Uruguay.

The Arsenal forward was featured in that game despite doubts over his fitness and Wenger feels they were in a position where they desperately needed his services.

"You have to trust the medical people from Chile," he said. "I completely understand that Alexis wanted to play in qualifiers - they’re not friendlies. Chile are not in a fantastic position to qualify for the World Cup and I understand that Alexis is keen to play for his country in such an important game.

"After that, [for us] it’s a difficult period in November because it’s the first time when some of the players have played many games. Most of the time it’s a decisive period in the Champions League because it’s game No 5 and, for most of the clubs it’s a very important time in the Champions League.

"In the Premier League, the first decisive games are also coming up so you have to pay a price. We lost important players in November for long periods last year."

Sanchez has been included in the list of players who are unlikely to make the trip to Old Trafford. His involvement will depend on the outcome of Friday's assessment.
