Alexis Sanchez has been absent for our entire pre-season, with the Chilean handed an extended break following his involvement – and victory – in the Copa America. He is set to miss the start of the Premier League season, but is still getting involved ahead of the new campaign.
The 26-year-old took to Instagram to give fans a sneak peak of himself in our new away kit, and the former Barcelona certainly wears it well.
Check out the image below:
Sanchez enjoyed a fantastic debut season at the club, and has been arguably Arsene Wenger’s best signing in a decade. Considering the success he enjoyed when he and his new Arsenal teammates were practically strangers, there is every chance we could see an even better Alexis Sanchez in 2015/16.
We haven’t exactly missed him in pre-season, with impressive wins over the likes of Lyon, Everton, and VfL Wolfsburg. Hopefully the tireless forward is back, fit, and firing on all cylinders soon though, because we are likely to miss him far more once the Premier League gets started.
He is likely to play a huge part in any success we are hoping to have this season, so the sooner he’s back the better.
