Alexis Sanchez won’t return to Arsenal until Tuesday as he is, according to Arsene Wenger, suffering from flu.
The manager said he’d received a text from Chilean, and his expected Sunday arrival has now been put back a couple of days.
The 28 year old posted a picture on Instagram the other day to say that he was sick, and Wenger was asked about in the press conference following today’s 5-2 win over Benfica.
Arsene Wenger says Alexis is now due to come back on Tuesday. There is "no development – he is staying, of course".

Pressed on the matter by journalists, the manager continued, “Your job is to be suspicious and my job is based on trust”.
This will, of course, lead to more speculation, but once again the club’s position has been consistent, insisting that Alexis will not be sold.
Let’s hope this isn’t the start of shenanigans from Sanchez’s side though.
