Arsenal boss confirms injury to star midfielder after 3-0 Man United victory

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has come out to reveal a slight injury concern to star midfielder Alexis Sanchez after the Gunners’ 3-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, according to reports from the Express.

Sanchez was once again the hero for the Gunners with two goals, but the Chile international limped off holding his groin and was replaced by Kieran Gibbs in the 80th minute.

But despite the problem, the 26-year-old is set to travel with the national team for games against Brazil and Peru over the next two weeks.

Wenger is however hopeful that he will return from the international break in good shape, as he can do nothing to stop him playing for his country.

He said: “He has a little groin problem.

“Unfortunately he goes to Chile. You cannot stop him from going to Chile and he loves so much to play for his country and he will play against Brazil [on Friday] and Peru [next] Tuesday so the game at home against Brazil he will not want to miss.

“Hopefully he will come back in good shape.”

Sanchez arrived at the Emirates in a £35million deal from Barcelona last summer and became an instant hit with the Gunners faithful, ending the season with 25 goals and 12 assists in all competitions.
