Wenger in the dark over Sanchez


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not know how long he Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla will be sidelined for.

Sanchez and Cazorla were both injured in the 1-1 draw with Norwich on Sunday with Wenger criticised for his decision not to rest the former for the game at Carrow Road.

Ahead of Saturday's lash with Sunderland, Wenger admits he has yet to discover the extent of the injuries to Sanchez, Cazorla and Mikel Arteta.

"At the moment on Alexis, Santi and Mikel, we don't know how long they will be out for," the Gunners boss told the Arsenal club website.

Laurent Koscielny was forced off with a hip problem against Norwich but he could return to the team at the weekend, while Theo Walcott faces a late fitness test.

We will make a decision on Saturday on Koscielny and Walcott, they could both make the squad. Gibbs is available again for the weekend," Wenger confirmed.
