Sanchez is available as a substitute for Sunday's match against Chelsea.

Sanchez has been out since Nov. 29 and is looking to make his possible return to the pitch Sunday. He was thought to be a possibility in last weekend's match until he was held out late. Looking ahead to Sunday's match, Arsene Wenger may be cautious with him as he has been and use him sparingly to reintroduce him to play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alexis (hamstring) could return Sunday against Chelsea, according to manager Arsene Wenger. "The doubt is that he has been out for a long time and [there is] the risk of a setback if you try to go too early," Wenger said. "To be clear on all the tests is one thing, after he is clear on training is another thing, and after that the intensity of a big game which you can never repeat in a training session. You can make sure after a certain amount of time that the risk is minimal. I am cautious with him because we cannot afford a setback with him. A setback would mean a very long period out so we donít want to take this gamble. The signs he has shown in training this week are positive."

Alexis was rated as 60:40 to play last weekend against Stoke before being held out, and given the lengthy absence -- he's been out since Nov. 29 -- Wenger is obviously being cautious with his superstar attacker. It's only a matter of time before Alexis reclaims his starting spot, which would move either Joel Campbell or Theo Walcott to the bench.

Alexis (hamstring) "has a 60:40 chance to be available" for Sunday's match against Stoke City, manager Arsene Wenger said Friday.

Wenger added that Alexis is fit but may still be held out, which makes a bit of sense given that Alexis has been sidelined since Nov. 29 due to the ailment. If he is able to start, either Joel Campbell or Theo Walcott would likely move to the bench, and if he is unable to play, his next opportunity would come Jan. 24 against Chelsea.

Alexis could return from his hamstring injury to face Stoke City on Sunday, manager Arsene Wenger said Monday. "We think he will be short for Wednesday [against Liverpool], he has a chance to be available for Sunday," Wenger said. "If you listen to Alexis, he can always play - even when he is injured. We try to be cautious. With a muscular injury you never exactly know how big the risk but he is very close. If you look at him training he is very close."

Alexis last played Nov. 29 against Norwich City, though the Gunners have been able to continue playing well in his absence, as Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell have both stepped up well. That being said, Alexis is one of the best players in England and it will be a huge boost when he does return.

Sanchez will miss Wednesday's match against Liverpool as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury, reports the Daily Mail.

The player could return to face Stoke on Sunday, but this week's match against Liverpool arrives too soon for him. He has been out since coming out versus Norwich in November.

Alexis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's FA Cup match against Sunderland. "The bad news of the week is that Alexis is not quite ready," manager Arsene Wenger said. "It is a precaution because of his hamstring, and it takes a few more days. He's not bad but he's not ready."

Given the timing, Alexis' appears to be doubtful to play in Wednesday's Premier League match against Liverpool. If he does miss that match, his next opportunity would come Jan. 17 against Liverpool.

Alexis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Newcastle, but he could return Jan. 9 against Sunderland in the FA Cup.

Alexis suffered a slight setback last week in his recovery, which is why he is going to keep missing time, though Theo Walcott has filled in very well, and he'll like continue to start until Alexis regains his match fitness.

Sanchez reportedly suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury and will be out until early January, the Daily Mirror reports.

The Chilean was expected to return before the end of the calendar year after initially suffering the injury in late November, but he will miss the holiday period after suffering the setback. Arsenal will likely tread carefully with Sanchez, considering the setback and the team's impressive performance in the meantime, so Joel Campbell and Theo Walcott should see plenty of minutes in his continued absence.
