To play or not to play Alexis? That is the question facing Arsene Wenger as he prepares for Saturday’s trip to Old Trafford.

Wenger would have seen the match already, but the time difference got the better of him.
“No, I fell asleep,” he confessed. “But I have watched the goals and he looked very sharp.
“I will watch the game today. I know him so well, like all my players that I observe every day, so I will be able to see if he was playing with a restriction or not.
“But for the first goal he scored he ran from the halfway line and resists [a challenge]. If you are really injured with a hamstring you cannot do that.
“It is a very difficult one because I am sure he will come back saying he is alright.”
