Arsenal fans have a bad news to hear as Arsene Wenger confirmed that Alexis Sanchez has suffered a groin injury during Premier League clash against Manchester United.
The Gunners boss confirmed recently that the Chilean who netted twice against the Red Devils on Sunday is now out with a groin problem. However, the Gunners have an advantage of the international break.
The 26-year-old was replaced by Kieran Gibbs in the final quarter of the game after feeling minor pain in his groin.

Wenger confirmed that he has suffered a groin but it’s a minor injury he will be back soon.
He is likely to miss the two important games for Chile against Brazil and Peru. But is expected to be back for Arsenal after the international break. The London side will travel to Watford after the break.
Sanchez is keen to play against Brazil and is hoping to get permission from medical squad. However, the Gunners would not be taking any kind of risk. It would be a further big blow if the former Barcelona attacker adds more pain to his groin while representing his county.
Sanchez had a difficult start this season but after his impressive performance last weekend he would be hoping to return stronger.
