Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given indications that the duo of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez should both be fit for Sunday’s London derby between the Gunners and their fierce rivals, Chelsea.
German playmaker Ozil was absent during last weekend’s barren draw away at Stoke City with a toe complaint, while Sanchez has been sidelined since late November because of a hamstring injury.
However, while Ozil is certain to return, Wenger is also positive that his Chilean attacker will be available for selection.
“Ozil certainly will be available and Sanchez, the next two days will be decisive, but I think this time he will make it,” the Arsenal boss told reporters.
The Gunners go into the clash at the Emirates Stadium top of the Premier League table and victory will further help their title ambitions.
