After his two goal salvo against Uruguay on Tuesday night, Alexis Sanchez says there’s no problem with his fitness and that he’s ready to face Manchester United on Saturday.
The Gunners travel to Old Trafford for an early kick off, and Arsene Wenger will have to decide if the forward’s hamstring injury on top of travel fatigue might keep him out of the starting line-up.
However, as you would expect with Sanchez, he’s up for it. Quoted in La Tercera, a Chilean newspaper, he said, “I travel to London today. I’m training on Friday and travel the same Friday to Manchester to play on Saturday at midday.
“There are no problems to play.”
All of which sounds good, but let’s see how he is when he gets back and is assessed by the medical staff. It would be a nice boost ahead of what is a big, big game.
