Arsenal and Chelsea will lock horns at Wembley on Sunday when they contest the FA Community Shield.
The Gunners ensured their place in English football’s annual season curtain-raiser by beating Antonio Conte’s Premier League champions in the FA Cup final and are chasing their 15th title.
Alexis Sanchez has returned to London and has been training with his Arsenal team-mates but the Chile international could be sprung from the bench instead of being a starter, having missed most of pre-season.
Arsene Wenger has not decided whether he will involve Sanchez and Shkodran Mustafi for the game, with the pair enjoying a longer break than the rest of the squad due to their involvement in the Confederations Cup.
Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey are carrying slight knocks, but the pair are set to train on Saturday and should be involved on Sunday. However, two players who will not play a part in the game are Francis Coquelin and Gabriel, since both players are nursing more serious injuries.
