Arsenal star, Alexis Sanchez is set to make a return in 10 days according to manager Arsene Wenger.
Sanchez will miss Sunday’s Premier League opener against West Ham after he returned to training later than his Arsenal’s teammates following his involvement in this summer’s Copa America tournament.
“He came back in surprisingly good shape,” Wenger said about his attacking star who scored 16 Premier League goals in his debut season with Arsenal.
“Sunday [against West Ham] will certainly come too early, but in 10 days he should be OK.”
With Sanchez set to be available for Arsenal’s home game against Liverpool on Aug. 24 at the latest, Wenger could soon have all of his top names to select from after the updated status of Wilshere’s injury offered a boost to the injury-prone midfielder who has started just 48 Premier League games over the last four seasons.
Wenger also played down Wilshere’s injury and disclosed he should be back in action soon.
“Jack is down, but the good news yesterday helped him to cope with it,” he added.
“You can never get used that [injuries]. When you want to play football, you ever get used to your body letting you down.
“The positive thing in this injury is it is not a recurrence of one of his former injuries. As well, the positive news with Jack is the history doesn’t play a part when he comes back. He plays with the same confidence and desire as before, but of course it’s difficult.
“We have all been at that age where he wakes up in the morning and wants to wants to play football and it is mentally difficult to wake up and not be able to do that, it’s difficult.”
