Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has given injury updates on two of his most expensive signings Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Speaking at a press conference, Wenger confirmed that Mesut Ozil will be available for selection to play against Chelsea on Sunday, adding that Alexis Sanchez will be closely assessed in the lead-up to the clash.
The Premier League leaders have been without Sanchez since late November owing to a hamstring problem, while Ozil missed last week’s 0-0 draw at Stoke City with a foot inflamation and illness.
“Compared to last week at Stoke, we have no big problems. Ozil is available and with Sanchez the next two days will be decisive,” Wenger said.
“This time we feel he will make it to be available for selection.”
He also gave injury updates on Francis Coquelin, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck
“[Coquelin is] back training today ahead of schedule. Welbeck will be back in training next week and [Tomas] Rosicky will play tomorrow with the Under-21s.”
Arsenal face Chelsea in her next Premier League match. The Gunners are top of the table level on 44 points with Leicester City.
