Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s game against Liverpool.
The Gunners will travel to Anfield looking to make up for the 1-0 defeat to Stoke last weekend, and are boosted by the return of both Laurent Koscielny and Alexis Sanchez.
The French international has completed his suspension following his red card against Everton at the end of last season, while Sanchez has recovered from an abdominal strain.
“He has worked very hard to be back again,” said Wenger, “and he is available again.”
“Works very hard, is very focused, he loves so much to play it’s hard to stop him. He looks ready, but he hasn’t played for a long time so I’ll have to to decide what to do with him.
“But he’s ready to play. He looks in good shape.”
Wenger confirmed that the Chilean international would be going away on international duty next week when the Interlull kicks in, and that he fully expects him to be an Arsenal player on his return.
