Alexis Sanchez return date to full fitness identified again
- The Chilean was on the bench against Brighton on Saturday.
- He's still not 100 per cent match fit.
- The FA Cup game with Arsenal could be his return.
Alexis Sanchez was only involved on the bench against Brighton on Saturday because he is still struggling for full fitness following his incessant setbacks.
After the final whistle in the Brighton win, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained why the Chilean had sat it out: ''He’s obviously not 100 per cent match fit. Because he’s been out for quite a while. But possibly he’ll be in the team in the FA Cup (against Arsenal) next week.''
Even before the game, Ole had said Alexis was unfortunate and couldn't catch a break with the same issue. He'd aggravated it in the FA Cup clash against Reading but could have another chance in the next round against his former club Arsenal, as Ole suggested.
