Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wary of Alexis Sanchez succumbing to fatigue

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted he is thinking about the fitness levels of in-form forward Alexis Sanchez ahead of a tricky Christmas period, reports the Express.

Sanchez, 25, has scored 14 goals in 22 games for the Gunners this season, since signing from Barcelona in the summer, and with him having accumulated so many games in all competitions for club and country already, Wenger is worried the fixture pile up around Christmas could see him struggle.

“He is in the red zone. You can see that when he plays but he can dig deep. He played his 27th game on Wednesday since the start of the season, if you consider international games and travelling on top of that. Unfortunately you never know how far you can push it. We are not scientific enough to predict that completely but he recovers very quickly,” said Wenger.
