It may not be as much of a test as it would have been at this stage last year, but Arsenal will still have to be at their best if they’re to successfully navigate the challenge of Chelsea this weekend. Fortunately, they probably will be at their best, as both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez should be back in contention to play in the fixture. Arsene Wenger confirmed Ozil will be available, whilst also implying that it would be a surprise if Sanchez doesn’t also feature. Good news all round. Meanwhile, Gunners legend Patrick Vieira has insisted he’ll draw on traits from Wenger as he attempts to crack professional management with New York City FC. The former midfielder said he liked Wenger for the freedom he gave for players to express themselves on the field.
