Photos: Sanchez, Ozil all smiles as Arsenal train ahead of Palace trip
Arsenal train ahead of their Premier League trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon
Alexis Sanchez looked in good spirits in Arsenal training as he hopes to make his first Premier League start of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Chile international is in contention for his first start of the 2015-16 campaign, despite his lack of pre-season training following his substitute appearance during the surprise 2-0 loss to West Ham United at Emirates Stadium last weekend.
Arsene Wenger said on Friday that Sanchez is in good physical shape, despite his extended summer holiday following the conclusion of the Copa America.
Mesut Ozil was among the other players pictured in action on Saturday morning as Wenger’s men were put through their paces at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground.
The Gunners are looking to bounce back immediately from the disappointment of their opening weekend defeat by the Hammers at Emirates Stadium, which left the north London side three points behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
Here are some of the best pictures from Saturday’s Arsenal training session.
