Arsene Wenger says that Alexis Sanchez has suffered a little setback to his hamstring injury and will now be out until mid-January.
The Chilean was supposed to be on the bench for the 2-1 win over Man City but had a reaction to his hamstring problem in training and will now sit out the festive period.
“Sanchez will be back for around the 10th January,” he said after the game. “He had a little set-back. He was planned to be on the bench tonight.”
It’s obviously a blow as a tired squad is already at breaking point, so we’ll have to see how this affects us when the fixtures really pile up.
More on this when we have it.
