Alexis Sanchez picked up a knock whilst training with the Chile national team and didn’t play any role in the side’s World Cup qualifier against Colombia. However, quite unsurprisingly, this doesn’t appear to have deterred the forward in the least.
Sanchez was seen doing some light training on Sunday, although his right thigh had a very noticeable bandage around it. The decision is sure to annoy Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, whose call for medical access to the player was recently denied.
With Chile currently outside the automatic qualification spots, it seems Juan Antonio Pizzi is willing to risk playing the forward, even if not for the full duration of the game.
