After a brilliant performance against Manchester City last night, Arsene Wenger’s team were exceptional in the field of play without Chilean international Alexis Sanchez.
Wenger revealed reasons why Sanchez was missing from the squad last night; he said Sanchez has suffered another massive set-back that will rule him out till mid of January next year.
Speaking to Arsenal.com after the game, the French tactician had this to say
He said: “I think he will be back January 10. Christmas period – you can’t count him.
“He had had a slight one (setback) yet but he planned to be on the bench tonight but he is so keen he got a little bit of a pain and we didn’t take a gamble.”
Wenger added that Sanchez suffered the set back two days ago.
Sanchez will therefore miss four games these include three Premier League games and one FA Cup match.
