Arsenal will face Manchester City on Sunday with the aim to end their unbeaten run this season.
However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed Alexis Sanchez is focused ahead of Sunday’s visit to Manchester City.
The Chilean international was linked with a move away from the Emirate Stadium with Manchester City keen on a £60m deal for the unsettled star.
But Wenger has no fears about the Chilean’s state of mind in a match against potential employers, or any possibility of divided loyalties.
“No, I am not concerned, because I am not suspicious of the performances or the desire to win of a football player,” Wenger said. “When you are a football player, you have a social contract with the rest of the team and I never question that. Once you don’t respect that, it’s difficult to say that you play football.”
Wenger is untroubled. “I think he’s coming back stronger physically. He is running after a goal at the moment so he’s a bit frustrated when he doesn’t score, like all goalscorers. But he works hard and it will come back quickly.
“At the moment he’s marked well, [opponents] double up on him, but he still creates many dangerous situations. And as for the goal, he just has not to worry too much. I know you always say that to strikers and they still worry, but over a longer period he has always scored and that will come back.”
