Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Sanchez, Wilshere and Welbeck


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Alexis Sanchez will miss Saturday's important game against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Chilean missed last week's 5-0 home win against Aston Villa and is expected to be back in the squad for Tuesday's game against Leicester City at the Emirates.

"[Danny] Welbeck is back in the group," Wenger told the club's official website.

"Apart from that we have the same squad available as last week.

"The latest is that Alexis [Sanchez] is not ready. He is not far away, the Leicester game is a possibility. He is of course very difficult to keep quiet! He is training but it's light training.

"Jack [Wilshere] is back in full training next week, hopefully from Sunday.

"Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] is still out, but he is starting to practice again, not full training.

"Serge [Gnabry] will play on Monday night at Newcastle [with the Under 21s and so will Krystian] Bielik. Bielik is coming along very well."
