Sanchez boost for Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful the return of Alexis Sanchez can boost his side's battle to get back into the top four with victory over bottom club Leicester tomorrow morning (Singapore time).

The Gunners went down 2-1 at White Hart Lane last Saturday, hit by a second-half double from Harry Kane to turn the match around after trailing to Mesut Oezil's early volley.

Chile forward Sanchez (above) has plundered 18 goals this season, but was not risked against Spurs because of a hamstring strain.

"Alexis Sanchez will be back in the group and we don't have injuries from Saturday. Everybody else looked fine yesterday," said Wenger.

"He is our best goalscorer and one of our hardest working players in the team... It is good to have him back." - PA Sport.
