Wenger: Now might not be the right time to rest Alexis

The Chile international has sustained a minor hamstring injury but is expected to feature in the clash with the Canaries this weekend, though Theo Walcott remains out

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed Alexis Sanchez has picked up a minor hamstring problem ahead of the Premier League encounter with Norwich on Sunday, but is hopeful the Chile international can still play.

Alexis put in a sublime performance in the 3-0 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday, scoring twice and setting up Mesut Ozil’s goal, and Wenger says he is unlikely to rest the Chile international, despite him featuring in every Premier League game thus far this season.

“Alexis had a little hamstring alarm. I will assess that later,” Wenger said at a news conference.

“But it might not be the right time to rest him.”

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could make his comeback after a spell on the sidelines due to injury, though Theo Walcott is unlikely to return, despite continuing his rehabilitation.

“Maybe Oxlade-Chamberlain could be back in the squad [for Sunday],” Wenger added.

“Walcott will not be ready for Sunday. He goes through a few [more] steps.

“He will have some tests Thursday. He started running again with no reaction and we hope he will be successful.

“And everyone who played Tuesday is available.”

  1. We’ve been disappointed boefre so it’s natural to expect the worst, but I tend to find that alcohol helps a lot in these situations.Na$ri, Cesc, RVP and Song have all left so why should Theo be any different as after all, he is a modern day professional footballer.But who knows? Maybe he really does love the club? Maybe he really does want to be the King’s predecesor? Maybe he won’t go to the Sheik or the Petrol Kings who can pay him the most? Maybe the English born ones actually give a shit and will want to stay?I know this is all wishful thinking and the realist in me syas he’s gone, if not in January, than as a free agent after the season, but we can hope right?Klass the Hunter who is in the same contract situation just signed an extension when I’m sure some English clubs were offering him a much better pay packet, so not all footballers go to the highest bidder. About 95% of them do like the Dutch Skunk, but maybe Theo is in that 5% like the Hunter.I know this is wishful thinking, but we just scored 7 at home so I don’t want Theo’s contrat situation to rain on this party! 4 0
