Lukas Podolski and Alexis Sanchez bear the cold to train ahead of Saints clash
Lukas Podolski and Alexis Sanchez managed to crack a smile despite the chilly conditions at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground on Tuesday.
The Gunners pair joined their team-mates for training ahead of their clash against top-four rivals Southampton at The Emirates on Wednesday night.
Sanchez has spent much of the season tucked up in a winter hat and scarf as the German continues to struggle to force his way into Arsene Wenger’s side.
But the 29-year-old appeared in high spirits alongside £35m summer signing Sanchez despite temperatures dropping to 7º in London on Tuesday afternoon.
Podolski wrote on Instagram: “Absolutely freezing today, but it got to be done! Good session this morning ready for tomorrow ! #Freeze #Training #Winter #Poldi #Alexis #Strassenkicker #AFC”
Arsenal were 1-0 winners at West Bromwich Albion in Saturday’s early kick-off.
