Arsenal FC will continue to be without the services of Alexis SA?nchez when they face Bournemouth on Monday, while ArsA?ne Wenger’s comments on Jack Wilshere’s injury status have increased concerns about the Englishman’s future


Arsenal FC have no new injuries going into the clash against AFC Bournemouth at the Emirates on Monday, but will also not be able to recall any of the players who are currently sidelined.

The Gunners’ injury crisis has been mitigated to a large extent due to the timely return of Welshman Aaron Ramsey, while England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been building up his match fitness with progressively increased minutes on the pitch over the past few games.

SA?nchez, Wilshere worries for Arsenal FC

However, Chilean Alexis SA?nchez is not yet ready for a return as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury, meaning he will miss the game against the Cherries. More concerning for Arsenal FC fans may be the news about midfielder Jack Wilshere’s recovery, with Wenger unable to provide a return date for the England international.


Wenger is quoted by the Guardian as saying: “He will not be back before February, thata s for sure. Is there a comeback date? I say February but, honestly, I dona t know. I let him do his recovery.

“Ita s going slowly. Once he goes outside to train and once he is back again into sharp, hard work, physically, you count five or six weeks. At the moment, he is not there yet.”

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta, Danny Welbeck, TomA?A? RosickA?, Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin all remained sidelined until the new year, and as such, will be unavailable for selection on Monday.
