PHOTO: While Arsenal are in Turkey, this is what Alexis Sanchez has been up to

Alexis Sanchez Chile

There is never a day off for Alexis Sanchez.

While Arsenal were in Turkey preparing to take on Galatasaray in the Champions League, Alexis Sanchez has not been resting up.

This is despite manager Arsene Wenger insisting he had been left behind as he was pushed to the limit physically, and needed a break ahead of the Newcastle fixture at the weekend.

Sanchez posted a photo of himself training in the gym at Arsenal's London Colney training ground, showing there is never quite a day off for the Chilean.

Earlier in the summer, Sanchez was pictured out running to keep fit in his native Chile, in the short break he was supposed to be having between the World Cup and Arsenal's pre-season.

Sanchez has been an instant success at the Gunners, scoring nine Premier League goals to date, and has helped cover up many of the team's defensive shortcomings.

Wenger claimed with the group in Dortmund's hands, there was just a 10 per cent chance of Arsenal finish top, which is why he has rested and rotated key players against the Turkish side despite the pressure building upon him.
