Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Sanchez, Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Alexis Sanchez is back in the squad.

The Chile international had to sit out Saturday's North London derby and it was clear the Gunners missed the creativity of the 26-year-old when approaching the final third.

"Alexis [Sanchez] will be back in the group and we don't have any injuries from Saturday," Wenger explained.

"Everybody else looked fine yesterday.

"He's [Alexis Sanchez is] our best goalscorer and one of our hardest-working players in the team. Physically I think we suffered a little bit on some occasions on Saturday and it's good to have him back.

"He's [Jack Wilshere] back in full training this week. I don't know exactly [how long until he returns], we have to monitor him on a daily basis and see how he develops.

"They [Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Debuchy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are still [a while] away. Oxlade-Chamberlain is about two weeks."

Meanwhile, the 65-year-old is confident his players will bounce back from the 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

"It's not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got today, and respond very quickly on Tuesday," he said.

"It's disappointing because we did fight hard together, but we made too many technical mistakes.

"We lost too many balls in situations where we could have put Tottenham in trouble. What is funny is that every time we arrived in their final third we looked like we could score a goal. But we didn't do it enough.

"Yes, of course, it is dangerous [to draw conclusions from a derby]. But as well the fact is that we lost a game, and we cannot deny that.

"But overall, there's a long way to go, so I believe that just keep going and recover, show quickly a strong response on Tuesday, and then we see where we stand after that."
