The Germany midfielder has been struggling with a knee injury but is now back in training, while Theo Walcott should be fit despite being forced off with a knock in the midweek Carabao Cup win over Doncaster.

But Wenger insists his involvement has only been restricted by the abdominal injury he picked up after returning from holiday following Chile's Confederations Cup campaign.

Asked if Sanchez was firmly in his plans, Wenger added: 'All the players are, he's not more than another.

"I think that, in the group stage, there are not many interesting games", he said. I just try to get him back to full fitness.

The game at Stamford Bridge last weekend certainly felt like it could be the catalyst for a change in our fortunes, as no one gave us much of a sniff against the in form and reigning champions.

Since the Premier League began in 1992 nobody has received more yellow cards than the ex-Aston Villa, Manchester City and Everton star.

"A manager who knows how the league work, a strong transition from defence to offense, very solid defensively, it's hard to play against them". RObson Kanu was also a good free addition but he is yet to settle and its unlikely either will start in front of the brilliant Rondon when the Venezuelan is fit.

Jack Wilshere made his first start for the Gunners since May 2016 in the win at the Emirates Stadium and impressed in the home side's midfield.

Inter are hoping to snag Mesut Ozil at the end of the season.

Ahead of his history-making night in London, Barry said: "I am definitely not a hardman".

The Arsenal boss confirmed that centre-back Calum Chambers will be sidelined until after the global break after suffering a recurrence of a hip injury in the win over Doncaster, while the target for Danny Welbeck is also to return for the Watford game on October 14.
