Photos: Alexis Sanchez looks too happy in Arsenal training with Alexandre Lacazette

Arsenal have another opportunity to smile on the faces of their fans when they play Liverpool at Anfield this weekend.

The Gunners have been put through paces as they step up preparation for the crunch tie and it is soothing to see that Chilean international and Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez looked really excited in training.

Sanchez is yet to play for Arsenal this season following an extended break as a result of his exploit in Russia with the Chile in the Confederations Cup. He also picked up an abdominal injury on his return but he has recovered and have been partaking in full training with the rest of the squad.

Arsenal suffered a shocking defeat to Stoke City last weekend but they will be looking to avoid another defeat. A loss to Liverpool will be calamitous to their campaign as Wenger looks to win the elusive Premier League title after 13 years.

Sanchez has stalled over new contract with Arsenal and he has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this season, with Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City all lurking with late offers.

Wenger has ruled out the sale of the star and it appears that Sanchez is happy to continue playing for Arsenal this season.
