Alexis Sanchez v Liverpool

This weekend Arsenal face another daunting task, as they take on Liverpool at Anfield.

Alexis Sanchez could return to action for the Gunners this weekend.

After competing in the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia, Sanchez returned to Arsenal later than most of his team mates.

He’s so far been unavailable for Arsene Wenger at the start of the season, however, after a few weeks of training, Alexis is likely to feature this weekend.

Alexis to leave Arsenal?

As everyone knows, Sanchez in the final year of his Arsenal contract.

From January, the South American can start talking to clubs outside the Premier League about a possible summer move as a free agent.

But could he join Man City now? That is once again floated in the Times, as readers are told the following:

Manchester City have not given up hope of signing Alexis Sanchez and are considering launching a bid to capture the £50 million-rated Chile forward before the transfer window closes a week today.

Guardiola has spent around £215 million on six players, but feels his side still lack a cutting edge and believes that Sánchez, who scored 30 goals in all competitions last season, is the man to fill the void.

Really? How would Pep even crowbar Sanchez into his team?

With the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Raheem Sterling all fighting for spots in the team, do Man City really need Alexis Sanchez too?
