Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will monitor Alexis Sanchez's recovery following the Chile international's 'hamstring alarm'.
As per ESPN, speaking ahead of the club's Premier League clash against Norwich City on Sunday, Wenger has insisted that it might not be the best time to rest the former Barcelona man, but he's not entirely sure whether he will prove his fitness in time for the upcoming fixture.
Sanchez has been in tremendous form for the north London outfit recently, scoring two goals against Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League victory in midweek.

With Arsenal hoping to return to winning ways on the domestic scene, Wenger will no doubt be hoping to select his main man on Sunday.
Sanchez, alongside Joel Campbell, will be assessed over the coming days as the Gunners prepare for their trip to Carrow Road.
Wenger told reporters: "Spontaneously it might not be the best moment to rest Alexis, but I don't know. He had a little hamstring alarm, but we will see how he recovers from that.
"Joel Campbell had a little calf problem so I will assess all that on Friday, and at the latest Saturday.
"We have providers. Alexis Sanchez, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla all have quality while Mesut Ozil is not just a provider now -- he likes to get on the end of things."
German playmaker Mesut Ozil has hogged the headlines recently, but Sanchez is still the club's main man in their pursuit of success this season. The powerful forward is comfortably one of the best players starring in the Premier League, so it's crucial that he manages to maintain his fitness this term.
With six goals in 13 league games, Sanchez offers so much to the cause, so the Emirates faithful will be hoping to see him take to the field against the Canaries. A victory is required for Wenger's side, but they will have it all to do if their talisman misses out.
