Alexis Sanchez looks to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with Mathieu Flamini as the Arsenal forward continues his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury.

The Chile international has not featured for the north London side since suffering the problem during the second half of Arsenal’s 1-1 draw at Norwich City back at the end of November.

Sanchez had been expected to return to the Arsenal squad for Saturday afternoon’s FA Cup clash with Sunderland at Emirates Stadium, but Arsene Wenger confirmed on Friday that the forward is not quite match fit.

However, the 27-year-old looks to be keeping himself entertained with his Arsenal team-mate Flamini, as he posed for a picture with the Frenchman.

Sanchez shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday afternoon and wrote: “Con mi amigo @mathieuflamini Grey.. with my friend @mathieuflamini Grey.”
