Reports from England suggest Chilean international Alexis Sanchez is on track to return to action for Arsenal when the Gunners take on Yaya Toure’s Manchester City in the Premier League.
Sanchez suffered a hamstring injury in last month’s 1-1 draw with Norwich City, but has been showing encouraging signs in training this week and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says the former Barcelona man could face Manuel Pellegrini’s men on Monday.
“Everyone who played against Aston Villa is fit. There is one or two possible comebacks.
“Alexis Sanchez has a slight chance. He’s not in full training but is running.” Wenger is quoted as saying on the Express.
Arsenal are a point ahead of City, but will be four adrift of Leicester City if Claudio Ranieri’s men win at Everton on Saturday.
