Wenger: Sanchez's ankle in 'absolutely awful state'

  • Arsene Wenger Arsenal West Brom

Alexis Sanchez has reportedly flown to Chile ahead of their World Cup qualifiers despite Arsenal's concerns over his ankle.

Sanchez suffered a nasty ankle problem during our 3-1 defeat to West Brom on Saturday after being on the end of a shocking tackle from Baggies winger James McClean towards the end of the first half.

Gunners manager Wenger later said Sanchez's ankle was "in a awful state" and it was feared he would miss Chile's upcoming fixtures.

However, Sanchez looked bright as he trained alongside his Chile team-mates as they gear up to face Argentina on Thursday.

And Sanchez looks likely to star in those matches after travelling to Santiago to link up with his worldwide team-mates.

Sanchez was substituted in the second half due to an ankle injury as Arsenal lost their fourth game in five Premier League outings. He's also a key performer for Chile-it will be an almighty relief for both parties if his injury isn't as bad as initially feared.

Wenger in November urged Chile not to make "a suicidal decision" on the fitness of Sanchez, who played in a World Cup Qualifier despite suffering a hamstring injury in the run-up to the game.

But the 28 year-old former Barcelona player has nevertheless travelled to South America for his country's matches away to Argentina and at home to Venezuela.
