Arsenal and Chile superstar Alexis Sanchez has suffered a low-grade muscle tear in training and is in danger of missing the Manchester United game next weekend.
The news was further confirmed by Sky Sports who claim that Chilean FA have confirmed Arsenal about Alexis’ injury status but have not revealed if he will return to Emirates or will continue to be treated at the national team’s medical facility.

Arsenal are still in the dark over Sanchez’s recent injury scare and could end up paying a huge price if Alexis is ruled out of the United game.
After a bright start to the season, Gunners have dropped 4 points in their last two games against Middlesbrough and Tottenham and like their previous seasons, November has not started on a positive note this time around either.
How will Arsenal shape-up without Alexis?
If the Chilean does miss the United game, Arsenal could line up with Olivier Giroud as their main striker with Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott flanking the wings with Mesut Ozil playing the number 10 role.
