After playing the full 90 minutes of Arsenal’s match against Brighton, it seemed Alexis Sanchez suffered some kind of knock, having been unable to train earlier in the week, reports El Mercurio via Sport Witness.
The Arsenal star was in the gym as he prepares for Chile’s crunch 2018 World Cup qualifiers in the coming week.
However, now La Tercera are reporting Sanchez trained normally on Wednesday and will be available to start for Chile – no surprises there. Alexis seems to be slowly easing himself back to his best after the summer.
Chile’s top scorer has shown moments of genius in his matches so far: A world class finish against FC Köln, a near-perfect long-ball to Walcott to earn an assist against Doncaster Rovers and a clever back-heel to Alex Iwobi to help the Gunners secure the lead against Brighton.
