Arsenal team news: Alexis Sanchez fit to start against Crystal Palace, Hector Bellerin returns & more

Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager, has provided an update on his team to face Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon at Selhurst Park.

Alexis Sanchez returned to training only days before their defeat to West Ham United, but was thrown into action in the second-half, and Wenger has confirmed that the Chilean is fit and could start against the Eagles.

What’s more, Hector Bellerin is set to return to the Gunners squad after picking up a muscle injury before last weekend’s opening game. Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere remain sidelined.

Wenger also commented on Petr Cech, who had a Premier League debut to forget, after playing a key role in the two goals conceded against the Hammers.
