Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Alexis Sanchez may be suffering from ankle ligament damage after picking up an injury during his side's 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion this afternoon.
A miserable game for the Gunners, which saw banners both in support of Wenger and against the Frenchman flown over The Hawthorns, went from bad to worse when Sanchez was forced off 12 minutes from time having been struggling with the injury since the first half.
Wenger admitted that Sanchez should not have come back out for the second half and told reporters after the game that the Chilean's ankle is in "an absolutely terrible state".
"He should not have played in the second half but he insisted that he wanted to. In the end we had to take him off," he told reporters.
"If it's only a kick, he will play [for Chile during the international break]. If the ligament is damaged, he will not play."
