Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
According to Chilean sports portal EMOL, Alexis Sanchez has suffered an injury which makes him a doubt for their World Cup qualifier against Colombia on Thursday.
The Arsenal man reportedly left this morning’s training session early after feeling some discomfort, and will be properly evaluated this afternoon.
Chile are due to travel to Colombia today, and if it’s a muscle tear he’s unlikely to make the trip.
The report doesn’t say which muscle is giving him problems, but there are suggestions it might be a torn calf. That, obviously, would be a blow for Chile but even more so for Arsenal.
The good news for Chile and Arsenal fans is Sanchez only has a minor muscle complaint and will play next week against Uruguay.

EMOL report Alexis has suffered a ‘contracture in the femoral triceps’, definitely a calf injury, and he’s out of the game against Colombia.
However, it looks as if he’s going to be able to play against Uruguay, the problem is described as minor.
