Arsene Wenger has revealed that Gunners super star, Alexis Sanchez could return for the FA cup match against Sunderland next week.

The Chilean forward has been out for more than a month after suffering a hamstring injury in the draw against Norwich, however when delivering the team news for this weekend`s league game against Newcastle, Wenger claims Sanchez could feature in the 3rd round match.

He said

“Alexis will be too short for Newcastle. He [could] be back for Sunderland.”

One would assume that Wenger is only using the match as a time frame for his return and would not risk bringing him back too early what with us, you know, leading the league and what not.

The manager also gave team news on our other absentees.

“We might have Flamini back. Arteta is back in training but is too short [of match fitness] to be selected in a competitive game. We have no new injuries from Bournemouth, only fatigue. Everybody is alright.”
