Arsenal receive injury boost ahead of next Premier League match



Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez has eased worries over a possible ankle injury.

The South American is presently away with his national  team on international duty, and according to reports, the Chilean limped off a training session at the weekend.

The Chile international forward was later seen wearing an ice pack on his leg (ankle), raising concerns that he could be ready for a long spell on the sidelines.

But the Barcelona summer target has now returned to training with the National team and should feature in their key FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Bolivia on Tuesday night.

The Arsenal star will then head back to the Emirates to be examined ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against AFC Bournemouth at the Emirate Stadium.

The Saturday match will be the 28-year-old’s first match back after the dramatic scenario on deadline day which saw the Chilean’s transfer to Premier League giant Manchester City failed to materialize.

There are other reports that Chilean was left angry with the Gunners for pulling the plug on the transfer, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has nothing to worry about how his playmaker will perform once he resumes training at the north London club.
