Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey in contention for Arsenal's clash with Bournemouth


The midfielder limped off with an ankle issue during the Carabao Cup semi-final tie at Chelsea on Wednesday evening, but manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is in contention for Sunday's game, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League (kick-off 1.30pm).

The Blues head into the game on the back of their thrilling 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the top flight last week as Arsene Wenger's men managed to fight back and earn a point against the west Londoners.

Jermain Defoe and Tyrone Mings remain sidelined with long-term injury issues.

But, while Wenger maintains it would be "normal" for Sanchez to stay until his contract elapses at the end of the season, he admitted that "nothing is decided one way or another".

He added: "My contract clarifies that [he will still be in charge next season]. I think they'll do really well to finish sixth".
