    Can't see him being injured to be honest. The club don't usually brief about minor muscle injuries in training.

    After the other night, the money is on a fall out and the club trying to stop the rumours before they begin by offering "an offical line" which the journo's can only speculate when refuting.

    I wanted to say you are wrong, but the club just announced that he injured himself today in the training session, which is weird, they hardly ever announce things like that.

    "During today's training session, Alexis Sanchez sustained a hamstring injury, which will require further investigation to confirm its severity."

    We're not at a point we can afford to lose any player for a fake injury anymore imo. I'm inclined to believe it's a real one.

    Just the Christmas gift Mourinho wanted. Will now be shipped out quietly in January. No fuss.

    Looks like he's going to be out of the squad for a bit longer , he's suffered a hamstring injury in training.

    What blows my mind is that Mkhitaryan is ripping up the turf for Arsenal.
    Arsenal supporters, City supporters, and indeed any supporters other than our own, are laughing at this humiliation and it's entirely due to the stupidity of our clubs 'brains' :(

    So, he lost to Mata in sprint training at Carrington. Mata must have been thrilled; probably gave him a big hug!

    I have no idea what that means, but Arsenal supporters are hardly happy about Mkhi.

    According to an article on the Norwegian offical website, he did indeed lose. Not sure it's funny, but I did laugh... There was a discussion on how Sanchez being forced to play less may be beneficial to him upon return as he has played too much for a long period and is exhausted. I'm not sure at 29 you will recover that much speed or agility, but if you are indeed exhausted, things may yet improve.

    Well, It's been nearly a year since we signed him and apart from that comeback against Manchester City, he's literally done nothing noteworthy. I think this injury situation seems fairly suspicious as well and I think that he might probably be off in January, he's not the player he once was and whilst he's certainly not a poor player there are so many better options for us out there if you look at factors such as value, age and how much he makes in wages.

    If the chance comes along to cut our losses on this one I strongly suspect that we will.

    There's a part of me hoping he's timed this because Mou is about to be moved on and his hamstring recovery will co-incide nicely with a new manager coming in. Woodward has a plethora of supposedly top players all woefully underperforming - buck stops with the manager

    They might not think him ideal but they're very much aware that he contributes more than Sanchez did in his last season with them and about 10 x more than Sanchez has contributed to us . . and they're saving a fortune on wages which releases cash to keep good players and bring better players in.

    We certainly got hold of the shitty end of the stick!

    Yeah, anyone who thinks Mkhitaryan is any different at Arsenal is not watching them. He couldn’t get on their team ahead of Iwobi on Wednesday. The saved money argument holds no water. They could’ve saved Sanchez’s wage without lumbering themselves with Mkhitaryan.

    I live in Manchester but work out of an office in Potters Bar - most of my mates are Arsenal supporters and they have a distinctly different opinion . . in fact they told me Sanchez was shit, even before they though that City were going to take him, and they had major fits of hillarity, at my expense, when they found that we'd blown City out of the water by paying him the highest ever wage for a uk based footballer! They said that we were criminally stupid and it doesn't make it easier for me that they were proven right.

    Everytime Mkhitaryan puts in a decent shift they rib me endlessly because Sanchez simply never does . . and it's blown any semblence we ever had of a wage structure and is likely to cause us to lose players that we'd prefer to keep . . while we'll never sell Sanchez because he's shit but costs £500k a week . . you don't get those problems with Henrikh and he realy does contribute to their performances when called upon to do so.

    Your mates don't rub your nose in it but I think that's out of kindness!

    No the couldn't. Once Woodward told Sanchez how much we'd stupidly pay him he was only ever coming here. Ergo; Arsenal had the choice of paying a disfunctional Sanchez until the end of the season + bonuses etc. or to swap him for a functional squad member - I bet Ed nearly lost his hand offering £24M per annum to Sanchez and nearly lost the other gifting Mkhitaryan to the Arse in exchange!

    How much do you think Arsenal actually saved over those 5 months? Sanchez wasn’t on that high a wage at Arsenal and Mkhitaryan isn’t playing for free. Any saving is vastly negated by now having to pay Mkhitaryan for four years.

    They were glad to get rid of Sanchez, but would let Mkhi go in a heart beat.

    I think all this 'he's always been shite' stuff is mostly bollocks. Yes he has never been the best passer but he was still very good at Arsenal and just hasn't done it for us.

    He had the entire summer off. If you can't recoup rest in 2 months as a footballer, you're in the wrong line of work.

    He definitely wasn't always shite. He had some fantastic seasons for them. He was pretty poor in his final season, though. I put that down to him being sick of the same old shite at Arsenal (who could blame him?!) but with hindsight it is possible that that was the season where his decline started. Seems ridiculously young for a footballer to suddenly go over the hill but I thought the same thing about Rooney - at a similar age - and we all know how that panned out...

    You need to take the opinion of gooners on this with a massive pinch of salt. Of course they're going to say Mkhi has been brilliant for them. They're winding you up!

    His decline started during his last season at Arsenal. It is highly unlikely he will perform anywhere near the level he showed at Arsenal during his last two full seasons for them. We are stuck with another overpaid player on a long contract, yet again. Hopefully PSG will take him for free during January.

    Yeah it often surprises me how quickly attacking players can lose it. See also Van Persie, Shevchenko, etc.

    Not quite convinced that is what is going on with Sanchez though. I think the move was just all wrong for him.

    Torres too.

    I would have added Falcao to that list when he was at United but he found his mojo again at a new club. So it does look like we might be part of the problem!

    "They" sound a bit thick

    Last season
    Mkhi at United: 2 goals in total, 5 assists
    Mkhi for Arsenal: 2 goals 4 assists

    Sanchez for us: 2 goals, 3 assists
    Sanchez for Arsenal: 8 goals, 3 assists

    This season: Mkhi: 2 goals, 3 assists¨
    Sanchez: 1 goal, 2 assists

    Variance can be cruel. His underlying stats have deserved far more goals and assists. Whoscored.com have him as our best player last season for instance, which might seem absurd but there was a lot of good underlying stuff. Obviously based on his salary and reputation, he has disappointed, but he’s not done much wrong.

    The more damning thing is his signing being approved when we had no more sophisticated idea than just playing him at inside left and pushing two fine, young players down the pecking order, with no solution for the right.

    He can control a ball pretty well and should play as CF with Rashford and Martial either side. Hopefully he returns soon..

    When is he back from his emotional time off in Chile?
