The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing the worst ahead of their clash with Liverpool this weekend…
The Gunners are coming off the back of a disappointing defeat at the hands of Stoke City, with the Potters’ new signing Jese coming through with the goods on his Premier League debut.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are likely to be buoyed by their recent Champions League success, with the Reds set to return to the group stages this season.
Indeed, the stage is set for quite the game, but fortunately for Arsenal, the Gunners have received some very good news in the lead-up to it. Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will be fit to feature in the clash, giving the Gunners a huge boost.

Sanchez has, of course, been unavailable thus far this season – having been struggling with fitness issues since returning to the fold after the Confederations Cup.
He is still facing an uncertain future – but there’s no doubting that if he is available to play, he’ll make a huge difference for Arsenal.
Sanchez is one of Europe’s best players, and Arsenal can’t afford to lose him.
They’ve struggled this season without him, and they’ll in a much better position to beat their Premier League challengers this weekend if the Chilean is in the team.
He won’t be match fit, but he’ll be ready to play if he can.
