Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes Arsenal can survive the sale of Alexis Sanchez.

It has been suggested that Sanchez could hand in a transfer request to force a move to Manchester City, while Paris Saint-Germain have also been in the hunt.

Courtois said: “Alexis is a guy with a lot of quality. If you see all the games from last season there is a lot of danger coming from him.

“He has a very strong shot, he is quick. He has the technique. He is important for them but Arsenal have a lot of players with quality.

“So they will miss him but I think they have a lot of players with that quality to replace him. I think they have bought a good new striker (in Lacazette).

“I’d prefer if he (Sanchez) doesn’t play because he is a good player! But we cannot only look to him.

“For example in the FA Cup Final (Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 in May) they missed some defenders and everybody thought they would be bad. But Per Mertesacker played a great game that day.

“So you cannot look to the team as one player or another player. It will be a difficult game regardless but I hope for the same outcome as the friendly last week.”
