It’s the question that we’ve all been sweating on for the last week or so, but it looks as if we’ve finally got an answer on the fitness of Alexis Sanchez.
After reports surfaced from Chile’s training camp that the 27-year-old had picked up a hamstring injury last week, many of us started to hit the panic button.
The news came at the same time that Hector Bellerin was ruled out for four weeks and ahead of a showdown with Manchester United this weekend question marks were raised over the starting XI.
However, during today’s final training session the Gunners were handed some positive news, with Alexis Sanchez featuring for the full afternoon.
Arsene Wenger revealed he would make a late decision on the Chilean after he played 84 minutes for his country on Tuesday night with what’s believed to be a strain.
But it looks as if we’ll have our season top goalscorer on hand to combat Mourinho’s men at lunchtime on Saturday, a fantastic boost to end a horrible record at Old Trafford.
