Alexis started and played 75 minutes in Arsenal's 2-1 win Sunday at Crystal Palace.

Alexis was his usual hyperactive self Sunday, leading Arsenal by taking seven shots, although only two landed on target. Many of his attempts were blocked, but Alexis did set up the Gunners' winning goal by soaring for a header that ultimately redirected off a Palace defender into the net. While the Chilean is still lacking of bit of sharpness following a busy summer, he remains Arsenal's most consistent goal threat on a weekly basis, placing him among fantasy's elite options.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alexis is starting Sunday against Crystal Palace.

Alexis was delayed in preseason due to his participation in the Copa America, though he was still able to make a substitute appearance in the Premier League opener last weekend against West Ham. With a return to full fitness, he regains his regular spot in the starting XI against a Crystal Palace side that has struggled defensively since Alan Pardew took over.

Alexis was introduced as a 68th minute substitute during Arsenal's season-opening loss to West Ham on Sunday.

Alexis, who spent the summer leading his native Chile to a Copa America title, just returned to Arsenal's setup earlier in the week, but the Gunners' two-goal deficit Sunday required his services to be called upon sooner than expected. Per usual, Alexis wasted little time getting into the action and ultimately finished with three shot attempts (two on target). With another week of training ahead, it wouldn't be overly surprising if the tireless talisman reclaims his starting position next weekend at Crystal Palace.

Sanchez is available off the bench Sunday against West Ham.

Sanchez only joined up with the club last week after a break following the Copa America, but manager Arsene Wenger said repeatedly that he was impressed by the shape Sanchez showed up in. He's a tough fantasy play by not starting, but he'll likely be back in the lineup next week against Crystal Palace.

Sanchez could be available for Sunday's match against West Ham despite previous reports that he's unfit after just returning to the club following a break after the Copa America. "Will he not be involved at all on Sunday? I don't know yet," manager Arsene Wenger said Friday. "It depends a little but on what I see [in training on Saturday] and who will be available."

With Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all fully fit, there is no heath reason to rush Sanchez back before he is ready. If he does not feature, he's fully expected back in the starting lineup the following Sunday against Crystal Palace.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Alexis is back in training but is unlikely to play Sunday against West Ham. "Alexis is back in training but I don't think he will be involved on Sunday," Wenger said. "It is a bit early maybe. We have to decide that at the end of the week, but I don't think he will be involved."

Alexis just rejoined the club this week after a multi-week break following Copa America, and while Wenger added that Alexis is in good shape, he just hasn't trained enough with the team to likely make an impact in the Premier League opener. Theo Walcott is the likeliest replacement in the starting XI.

Sanchez will return to training with Arsenal on Aug. 3, manager Arsene Wenger said Friday.

Sanchez was given additional time off because he was with Chile for their Copa America victory, giving him little offseason to rest before preseason begins. Due to his delayed schedule, he will miss the Community Shield match against Chelsea on Aug. 2, and is likely to miss the Premier League opener Aug. 9 against West Ham, making it possible he'll debut Aug. 16 against Crystal Palace.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alexis will not play in the Community Shield against Chelsea or the Premier League opener, which comes Aug. 8 against West Ham, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Tuesday.

Alexis spent most of his summer helping Chile win their first Copa America, and he won't return to training with Arsenal until Aug. 3, which isn't enough time to get him fit for the opener. However, Wenger intimated that Sanchez could be back quickly thereafter, making it possible to debut Aug. 16 against Crystal Palace.
