Arsene Wenger insists he has no concerns about playing Alexis Sanchez against Manchester City next weekend.
The Chilean attacker was linked with a move to the Blue side of Manchester but the deal broke down on transfer deadline day with City failing to agree to a deal involving Raheem Sterling to Arsenal.
Sanchez, 28, is out of contract at the end of the season and is not expected to sign a new deal at Arsenal.
Arsenal travel to face early pace-setters City on Sunday but Wenger has no issue in playing Sanchez against the side he could have been turning out for.
“I have no concerns because I’m not suspicious about performances or the desire to win of a football player,” he 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 is difficult to say that you play football.”
“I think he is coming back stronger physically. He runs after goals at the moment so he is a bit frustrated when he doesn’t score like all the goalscorers,” he said.
“I’m not worried about it, he works hard and it will come back. You never try too hard. I think at the moment he is marked well but he still creates many dangerous situations and he just has to not worry too much.
“You say that to all the strikers and they still worry but over longer periods he has always scored goals so that will come back.”
