Alexis Sanchez to miss Arsenal’s trip to Turkey
Arsenal’s Chilean star Alexis Sanchez will miss Arsenal’s trip to Turkey to face Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League.
“I will have to give him a week’s break at some stage, yes, to give him a breather. He will not go to Turkey,” Wenger said.
“I did it with many players before who were a little bit playing every game. I did it with Henry, with Van Persie and it always helped them to get through without being injured.
“You have to know when to rest him and when not, but I think at the moment he plays at his peak on the edge.”
Arsenal sit second in Group D with 10 points from five games. Galatasaray find themselves rock bottom of the group with a sole point from 5 games.
The 25-year-old joined Arsenal during the summer transfer window from Arsenal for €38 million.
Alexis has scored 16 games in 22 appearances for Arsenal this summer
