There was one shining aspect of Arsenal’s recent 1-0 loss to Chelsea and that was the return of Alexis Sanchez to the team. The Chilean had missed a number of games for the Gunners due to a hamstring injury but him being back will surely give a boost to the team as they look to win a Premier League title after more than a decade.
Arsenal would look like a completely different side if Sanchez was back in the team and playing at his best, his creativity, power, pace, shooting and running would give them more firepower and with Mesut Ozil playing as he is, it wouldn’t be a surprise that this return is the most anticipated one for Arsene Wenger.
There are however a number of big players who are injured or have been injured for a long part of the season and we look at five such players from the Premier League who are sorely missed by their respective clubs.
What Liverpool fans wouldn’t give to see a fit Daniel Sturridge play for their club, the English striker has barely kicked a ball under Jurgen Klopp and with the German employing a game which requires a striker who is willing to make quick dashes and runs it is a shame to see Sturridge spend so much time out of the squad.
The 26-year-old would have provided Liverpool with the firepower that they so have missed this season and certainly could have helped them win a lot more games, he should return soon but nobody knows how long he will stay fit.
