Arsenal have been handed a major injury boost this weekend following all the concerning reports which did the rounds during the week.

With November historically being a month of big injury blows and bad results for Arsenal, fans have been enduring a nervy wait over the fitness of key players who have been called upon to represent their country.

Thus, it was almost inevitable to hear that Alex Sanchez had been withdrawn from training in South America only days before Hector Bellerin was ruled out for several weeks with an ankle injury.

There have been a few days of uncertainty over the fitness of Sanchez in particular, but the 27-year-old appears to have battled his way out of being sidelined.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Barcelona star has returned to training with Chile ahead of their clash with Uruguay next week.

Sanchez was fully involved in the session in Santiago as the Copa America champions prepared for an important World Cup qualifier.

That will be much to the relief of Arsene Wenger who has seen the forward score eight goals and rack up six assists in all competitions so far this season, leading the team in both categories.
