Alexis Sanchez took to his Instagram page in order to send a message to strike partner Danny Welbeck who has recently undergone surgery on his knee and will be out for a number of months.
Alexis was away on international duty with Chile when the news broke of Welbeck’s setback, and his return to club duty has seen him aim to boost the forward’s spirits.
The two struck up a good understanding during the first few months of last season, but their time on the pitch together has since been limited.
Welbeck remains our only legitimate option as a central striker should Olivier Giroud become unavailable which means his current injury setback is a significant blow to our title chances.
Arsenal news & rumours
Alexis and Theo Walcott can operate in a central role, but both speedsters currently lack the knowledge needed in order to master that position.

Hopefully, we’ll have a fully fit squad – including Welbeck – available following the turn of the year to aid our chances in 2016.
