Arsene Wenger has said Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez might be ready to return in Monday’s home clash with Manchester City.
Sanchez has been out with a hamstring problem since the 1-1 draw with Norwich at the end of last month, but Wenger said he might be available for the clash at the Emirates Stadium.
“Everybody who played against Villa is available for Monday,” he told a news conference.
“Maybe there is a slight chance for Alexis to be in the squad again, but it is too early to be sure about it. He is running, but not participating in full training.
“You know the players and their psychological profile, you take that into account then you get scientific advice and you trust your gut as well and then you make a decision. “I believe that is normal that he wants to play. You want him to be keen to play. He respects all the decisions I make, and that is what I want from him.”
Arsenal are second in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Leicester and one point ahead of City in third place.
