Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has wished us luck for the Community Shield clash against Chelsea with the Chilean on an extended break following his Copa America excursions.
Alexis was part of the team that beat Manchester City in the same fixture last year but is yet to resume full training ahead of the new season.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been named in his place by Arsene Wenger, but the team could still do with the magic of Alexis who is capable of deciding a game on his own.
Arsenal transfer news
Alexis scored 25 goals in all competitions last season, including a sensational effort at Wembley in the FA Cup final against Aston Villa in May.
In fact, Alexis netted six times in his last five visits to Wembley, a factor which highlights his unbelievable efficiency in the final third.
- Arsenal ready a £25million bid for a ‘rising star’ of Dutch football
- Arsene Wener to return to dugout since leaving Arsenal in 2018
- Arsenal target ex-midfielder transfer after four years apart
Given that he’s yet to train with the side, Alexis will most likely miss our opening Premier League fixture against West Ham United, but it shouldn’t take him long to get up to speed such is his infectious work rate.
