Arsenal suffer yet another injury blow, key man ruled out for 3 weeks


Injuries and Arsenal do not seem to let go off one another. In a fresh blow to the Gunners, Alexis Sanchez has suffered a fresh hamstring injury blow which will keep him out for at least 3 weeks.

Earlier, Arsene Wenger had planned to keep Sanchez among his substitutes for the game against Manchester City. However, he could not make in to the team and it was later confirmed that Alexis will miss the crucial festive period.

Despite the key absentees last night, Arsenal managed to secure a convincing 2-1 win over Manchester City. The win will see arsenal guarantee a second place on Christmas. Given how well they are playing, once Alexis Sanchez returns to the mix, Arsenal could really push for a title march this season.

According to initial reports and scan results, Alexis will return for the game against Liverpool on January 13.
