Alexis Sanchez could return for Leicester City clash

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that star man Alexis Sanchez could return for the club's Premier League clash with Leicester City tomorrow, reports Sky Sports.

The Chilean international, who has been in tremendous form throughout the course of the campaign, missed this past weekend's defeat to north London rivals Tottenham after picking up a hamstring injury, however it now appears that he could return sooner rather than later. 

Gunners boss Wenger has, however, insisted that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is out of tomorrow's showdown, as his side look to bounce back immediately.

Speaking to reporters, the Arsenal manager said: "Chamberlain is out, the only one who has a chance to be on the bench or to start maybe is Sanchez."

There's no doubt about it, after losing on Saturday, Gunners fans will be extremely pleased by the prospect of Sanchez returning to the setup.

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Wenger throws his key man straight back into the starting XI or whether he utilises him from the bench. 

With or without Sanchez, though, Wenger will no doubt be hoping for a positive response from his squad after admitting that his side made too many mistakes against Spurs. 


The Arsenal chief continued by saying: "It is not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got at Tottenham, and respond very quickly on Tuesday.

"It is disappointing because we did fight hard together, but we made too many technical mistakes. We lost too many balls in situations where we could have put Tottenham in trouble.

"What is funny is that every time we arrived in their final third we looked like we could score a goal, but we didn't do it enough."

There's no doubt about it, with the race for the top four heating up, Arsenal can't afford to drop points tomorrow evening.

In fact, just three points separate Southampton who sit in third and sixth place Arsenal. Leicester, though, will be desperate themselves to secure a positive result in north London, with the club currently sitting at the bottom of the Premier League table.
