Alexis Sanchez could feature in the Community Shield
Alexis Sanchez could be in contention to appear in Arsenal’s Community Shield clash against Chelsea on Sunday after returning to training.
The forward’s participation in the club’s pre-season preparations had been delayed, first by him representing Chile at the Confederations Cup and more recently by illness.
Next to a photo on social media of him running, he wrote: “Back to training.”
His potential availability would be a significant boost to Wenger, who remains adamant Sanchez will not leave the club this summer, despite entering the final year of his contract.
It would also represent the first opportunity to test him alongside club-record £46.5million signing Alexandre Lacazette.
