Arsene Wenger has revealed that Alexis Sanchez is a doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Norwich City due to a minor hamstring problem.

The Chilean international completed the full ninety minutes as his Man of the Match performance helped us to a 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

However, speaking at his pre-match press conference this morning, the boss has confirmed that Sanchez is suffering from a small hamstring problem ahead of our trip to Carrow Road this weekend.

Many fans will be hoping Alexis isn’t risked on Sunday but Wenger suggests he’ll resist the temptation to rest the attacker if the clubs medical team give him the green light to play.

I personally think it would be a huge risk to start Sanchez if he’s carrying a knock as the last thing we want is to aggravate the injury and see him ruled out for an extended period.

Therefore, if The Ox is available again, I’d start him and Campbell on the wings and give Sanchez a breather – but I do appreciate that will be difficult given how well the South American is playing right now.
