Arsenal News: Sanchez desperate to train ahead of North London derby

Published 1 Comments

He may have played 90 minutes against Southampton in the Capital One Cup this week but it seems as though Alexis Sanchez is determined to cram in as much football as he can before Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby this weekend. Quotes from teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain today reveal that the Chile forward had to be told to take it easy, after trying to put in extra training sessions ahead of the crucial fixture at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow. Sanchez is said to have attempted to disobey Arsene Wenger’s orders to rest on Wednesday and Thursday, following the defeat to the Saints mid-week, and instead tried to train with the first-team as usual, before being told to rest up by Arsenal coaches.
