Big Blow for Arsenal as Alexis Sanchez is ruled out of season

Alexis Sanchez is an injury doubt for Arsenal’s crunch clash against Sunderland on Tuesday evening, Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

The 28-year-old suffered a thigh injury during the Gunners 4-1 win over Stoke City at the weekend.

Wenger said it ‘did not look good’ for the Chilean and confirmed he is set to undergo a series of tests later today.

‘Sanchez will have a test today to see [whether he can face Sunderland],’ Wenger said. ‘Yesterday it didn’t look too good but with him you never know as he’s so keen.

‘It was just a kick to his thigh so possibly he can recover for tomorrow.’

Meanwhile, Wenger said experienced defender Laurent Koscielny is struggling with a calf problem, although the rest of the squad is at his disposal.

‘Koscielny has a little problem – it’s a reoccurrence of his calm injury,’ the Frenchman said.

‘Everyone else is available except for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.’
