Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez posts horrific pictures of injury following Leicester game
Alexis Sanchez was caught up in a dreadful incident at the end of the 1-0 win over Leicester.
He was trying to stop Christian Fuchs executing a long throw and the Leicester man threw the ball straight at Alexis’ shoulder and the Chilean is lucky to still be able to play after it.

Really terrible stuff there. Alexis was able to carry on for the rest of the game but he posted this picture of his injuries.

It is thought that Alexis will be able to play in Sunday’s North London Derby and should avoid surgery.
Alexis did not have his best game against Leicester and it is understandable after playing 120 minutes at the weekend. He did however please fans with his late turn into a wind up merchant. First the Fuchs incident and then a few minutes later a clash with Robert Huth. Fans won’t mind if he carries that on to Sunday.
