Reports from Chile claim that Alexis Sanchez will be assessed after picking up an injury in training on Saturday.
Sanchez has endured a frustrating few days after his proposed mover to Manchester City fell through following a failed attempt by Arsenal to land Monaco attacker Thomas Lemar as a replacement. The 28-year-old was also part of the La Roja side soundly beaten 3-0 at home by Paraguay on Thursday leaving their automatic World Cup qualifying hopes hanging in the balance. Now, South American news outlet BioBioChile say Sanchez has suffered an injury to his left ankle which could potentially rule him out of the crucial qualifier in Bolivia tomorrow, although initial reports suggest the problem is not too serious. To compound matters, former Chile coach Jose Sulantay has blasted the winger for returning to the international fold "fatter than normal". He told La Cuarta: "I saw him gone, I saw him out of physical shape, totally. Without his spark, he never left that Paraguayan defence behind. He never made a diagonal run, it was something else. It was not Alexis." Sep 4 - 4:56 AM
