The Daily Mail seem to think that Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez has a couple of decisions to make ahead of the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur this lunchtime.
Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are shocked as it is made clear that the injured Chilean star might risk his fitness to feature.
The Gunners have been heavily reliant on Sanchez this season but as one of our punters notes, we are not sure he should be risking a few more weeks out if he manages to aggravate his injury by playing against Spurs – and all against medical advice as well.
Wenger spoke ahead of the crunch fixture and claimed: “He wants to play, of course, he’s very keen, he feels he can defy the medical people because he is so keen to play that he thinks he can get over strains.”
The game against Spurs is a huge one, not just for local pride but also the fact that it could go a long way in deciding who gets that final Champions League qualification place and some of our Arsenal fans would risk the Chilean for that fact alone.
Arsenal fans. Would you risk Sanchez in today’s London derby? What are your score predictions? Let us know your thoughts below.
