Wenger: Sanchez's ankle in 'absolutely bad state'

Wenger: Sanchez's ankle in 'absolutely bad state'

The Chile International has 14 months left in his contract with the Gunners and it is not his intention to extend his stay at the club, according to various reports around Europe.

While Arsene Wenger wasn't too positive about the state in which his ankle was in after the game, reports in the Chilean media from El Grafico suggest that the knock isn't as bad as first feared and so Sanchez could return to action during the worldwide break.

Writing on Instagram in a post tagged in Santiago, Chile, Sanchez captioned a photo of himself with the phrase: "The only failure is not to try".

But on Monday, Instagram added a feature that lets you hold onto your live broadcast and rewatch it later on. It has since been gradually rolling out this feature to more users across the globe.

As noted by Goal's Iain Strachan, Sanchez was on the receiving end of a strong tackle from Baggies winger James McClean in the Premier League encounter. "His ankle is in an absolutely bad state".

"He was injured from the tackle in the first half".

The 28-year-old was clearly still feeling the effects of the injury during the second half and he was eventually replaced by Alex Iwobi with 20 minutes remaining.

The proposal is likely to be ratified later this year but the 30-year-old Spaniard says the changes do not go far enough. Maiden title wins, golden point winners and outrageous midair catches, these are our plays of the week.

"Chile goes to Argentina for a massive game but it's not until next week", Wenger told Standard Sport.

"His ankle is swollen".

Wenger admitted after the game that he feared Alexis may have damaged ligaments but was waiting for scans to be done before the full extent of the injury was known.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, however, downplayed the content of the statement. He said he favoured "free" trade but some agreements might need to be renegotiated.

Copa America holders Chile occupy the fourth and final automatic qualifying spot in the CONMEBOL group. Whichever side finishes fifth would face a play-off to secure their passage to Russian Federation but, with sixth-placed Colombia lurking close behind, the margins are tight for the CONMEBOL side.
