Photos: Sanchez and Flamini all smiles in Arsenal training session
Arsenal train ahead of their Premier League clash with Newcastle United on Saturday
Alexis Sanchez looked in good spirits after his week off as Arsenal trained ahead of Saturday’s clash with Newcastle United.
The Chile international was pictured joking with Mathieu Flamini at Arsenal’s London Colney training base on Friday morning ahead of the Premier League game.
Sanchez was given the week off by manager Arsene Wenger as the forward sat out Tuesday’s Champions League win over Galatasaray.
Wenger confirmed on Friday morning that Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny would miss the game against the Magpies due to injury.
The Frenchman did, however, confirm that Kieran Gibbs, Flamini, Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck are all fit and ready.
Arsenal head into the game looking to bounce back from their 3-2 loss to Stoke in their last Premier League outing last weekend.
